This second outpost of Jack’s Wife Freda doesn’t have the long lines found at the first one in Soho on Lafayette
We headed there after seeing the way-too-long Rancho Vieja at Playwrights Horizon. If ever a play needed editing this 3-hour, 2-intermission one was it. Great acting, though.
Not being too hungry, we opted to try a few of the menu “shares.” I was only disappointed in the thick zucchini slices ($9) that came with a smoked paprika aioli as I had sampled incredibly paper thin ones at Avra. I felt the same about the large chunks of salt and pepper eggplant ($10) although I liked the tzatziki accompaniment.
What’s really good is the roasted cauliflower that didn’t really need the creamy garlic dressing & capers ($12). Also tasty are the peri-peri chicken wings ($10) that one of my friends recalled being served with a spicy green sauce with the chicken for lunch. We requested that — which was delicious — and worth the trip alone.
