Jackson Street Bistro in the heart of downtown Tampa opened April 2009. Since their debut two years ago, Jackson Street Bistro has become a popular lunch spot for the wave of business professionals in the downtown area. The extensive menu, consisting of healthy comfort foods, combined with the chef’s exotic twist on traditional café favorites, keeps their customers coming back for more.
The restaurant has an open-air Tuscan feel, offering indoor and outdoor seating. It is common to see the office crowd conducting casual business meetings over one of JSB’s make your own salads, all made with a mélange of baby spring lettuces and served with a freshly baked muffin. Corporate customers also take advantage of the free WIFI, multi-tasking over a smoothie, quiche or specialties like the Bistro Club, with grilled chicken, avocado, bacon, feta and a mango chardonnay.
JSB also makes it possible for guests to enjoy their fresh and delicious fare without even leaving their workplace. Their catering business is just as popular as their bistro, delivering to many of the surrounding high-rise building offices. They make cakes to order for office parties and even offer online ordering, making delicious take-out and delivery a little more convenient. Gone is the greasy pizza of take-out past—replaced by JSB’s fresh, gourmet menu items like the pressed Cuban sandwich, with choice of seasoned waffle fries or pineapple raisin coleslaw, Italian meat-stuffed muffalata and a build your own bistro burger.
Restaurant proprietor Peter Pergola has made improvements to the menu over the past couple of years. He has tailored his restaurant and catering business to the downsized economy without compromising flavor. He has also made the foods that everyone loves lighter by swapping out heavy ingredients, like the breadcrumbs in their scrumptious meatloaf, with healthier substitutes, like oatmeal.
