Jaco’s Bayfront Bar and Grille: Great Food and a Great View
When I think of some of my favorite restaurants with a view, immediately Jaco’s Bayfront Bar and Grille comes to mind. Not only does Jaco’s have fantastic food, but you can also enjoy an incredible view while you savor your meal. There’s nothing more relaxing to me than enjoying the Bella Mushroom Stack while sitting on the veranda enjoying the sunset.
Jaco’s is also an ideal spot for lunch. I love dining here when the days are bright and sunny and the skies are clear. There’s something about sitting outside enjoying the view of the water that just relaxes me. It’s therapeutic. This is one reason why I could not live in a landlocked state without regular trips to the beach. I NEED to be near the water!
If the view isn’t enough to entice you to visit Jaco’s, here’s what will completely convince you: the Bella Mushroom Stack. I still recall the very first time I ate at Jaco’s. Friends from work treated me for my Birthday and introduced me to the Bella Mushroom Stack. Ever since then I’ve been a fan! Next time you go to Jaco’s, or if you’re making an appearance for the very first time, order the Bella Mushroom Stack and prepare to be amazed.
Jaco’s Bella Mushroom Stack
What I like best about the Bella Mushroom Stack is the unique taste and textures. There are multiple levels of flavor to this entrée. A grilled portabella mushroom dresses a layer of creamy risotto and is topped with fresh, peppery arugula. The grilled portabella gives you the chew you would expect from a meat, while also imparting the savoriness you would expect from a well-seasoned protein. The risotto is laced with a pesto sauce that gives it a pleasant punch of basil herbiness that balances out the buttery goodness of the risotto.
A bright tomato cream sauce imparts just the right level of acidity. I love the inclusion of the Kalamata olives and the garnish of feta cheese. It subtly imparts a Mediterranean flair. The brininess from the olives along with the salty tanginess of the feta add a nice dimension to this plate. A balsamic drizzle gives a delicate hint of sweetness. The Bella Mushroom Stack is rich, but it does not sit heavy due to the balancing infusion of seasoning and herbs that offset the richness of the risotto and cream sauce.
This is the perfect time of year to be outside breathing in the fresh air and enjoying this paradise we’re fortunate to call home. Make these lovely spring days even more fabulous with the Bella Mushroom Stack savored over a picturesque waterfront view. Cheers to fabulous food and scenic views.
