Dinner is now being served at the Jones
New casual Noho seafood restaurant the Jones is now open for dinner. The remake of iconic restaurant Great Jones has been serving breakfast and lunch for a little over a month now, and now the cafe is truly all-day. Dinner menu options include raw bar, a fried fish sandwich modeled after McDonald’s Filet O’ Fish, pork milanese, and spaghetti with clams. Cocktails include one made with tequila, sherry, falernum, and lime. The full menu is below.
The seafood restaurant has been a hot new addition to Noho, despite taking over a space that inspired a lot of loyalty when it was Cajun cafe Great Jones. Acclaimed West Village restaurateur Gabriel Stulman took over the restaurant after it closed determined to keep the spirit of the place in that it is a neighborhood spot.

My editor just tried Mapo Tofu for the 1st time after lifetime declaration of no love for Sichuanese food (his taste skews toward croque monsieur), looked up from his plate & said,” this is kind of delicious.
