Casual and infinitely accommodating, this downtown restaurant occupies a space whose exposed red brick walls and rough timbers are sufficiently weathered, homage no doubt to the building's long history. And yet, old school as it may appear, Smoke Jack is not without its modern elements – the impressive collection of original art sees to that. As to the Southern-inspired fare, the kitchen delivers a lineup rich in flavor thanks to its devotion to pit-smoked and wood-grilled meats. Will it be the 12-hour brisket, the pork spare ribs or the roast duckling? And if that decision wasn't tough enough, the down home sides range from smashed sweet potatoes to mustard greens. A lively bar scene and blues acts on Friday and Saturday nights help ensure a steady crowd throughout the week.
