Jane restaurant in Greenwich Village, NYC, New York

It has been a while that we wanted to try Jane in Soho. Each time we passed by on the weekend, it was packed with a long wait outside, so I was figuring that there was probably a reason, hopefully food related!

We went on a Saturday evening, not too late to make sure we would be able to eat there! I thought that it was a small restaurant: it is in fact of a good size with another room downstairs! Modern, but cozy. At first, the restaurant was empty, but when we left, dinners started to come!

We decided to go for a light dinner as the day was filled with food! We started off with handmade burrata served with roasted tomatoes and ciabatta bread.

Burrata is an Italian cheese made of mozzarella and cream: the outer shell is "hard" and the inside is cream.
It was succulent: the burrata was to die for especially eaten with olive oil and the roasted cherry tomatoes! It tasted very fresh and was a perfect appetizer to start our meal!

We then ordered a Mediterranean salad.

It was a pretty straight forward salad: feta, olives, cucumber, tomatoes, red onions and lettuce. It was good and not too overdressed!

Then came what I was looking for: Jane's burger!
That was a huge plate! The burger is made with cheddar, double smoked bacon, caramelized onions, lettuce, pickled tomatoes and a secret sauce! I am not sure what type of bread it was: white, soft and it was toasted.
I loved it! Perfectly cooked (medium) and juicy! I loved the different flavors I could get at each bite, between the sweetness of the caramelized onions and the acidity of the pickled tomato. It was fantastic! Better and cheaper than the burger at the Spotted Pig I tried few weeks ago!!!

The burger was served with some delicious rosemary French fries.
I had a great dinner at Jane and I am looking forward to try their brunch: they have French toast with creme brulee batter! I am sure I will enjoy!

Enjoy (I did)!
