The casual, laid back Soho joint Jack's Wife Freda, has some tasty bites and fine fare. I stopped in recently, and had a solid meal. There is nothing mind-blowing about the space or the place, but, with a relaxed vibe and delicious grub, it's worth stopping in and checking out.
Salt and Pepper Eggplant ($6), is a unique snack that tickled my taste buds with joy.
Chicken ($18) comes with a peri-peri sauce and is tasty as can be. A beautiful crisp outside, and juicy and tender inside, it completely satisfied me.
Flourless Chocolate Cake ($7) with chipotle and chocolate mouse is quite excellent. I loved that kick from the chipotle. Order it.
So leave your ego at home, at this laid back, and solid American joint in the heart of sceney Soho. Solid and tasty bites await.
