Deathwatch: Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar

William Grimes may have given Jack Lamb's East Villager two stars when it opened in 2003, but that was then, this is now. Having recently relocated from a very cozy townhouse on East 5th Street to an exposed storefront on bustling second avenue, all of the charm that sustained the otherwise-pretentious seafood shack, past the departure of Alison Vines-Rushing, too, is gone. There is nothing left to see here, folks. While it may have up to another 12 months left, it's time Jack's got a bed in the Eater Hospice. Over/Under on shuttering: April 2008.
