A few steps down from Rivington’s street level away from the rush of cars and passerbys, Jadis feels like the cozy, favorite neighborhood dive of a Parisian 1940’s starlet. (Yes, that’s specific imagery pulled straight from Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds.) The restaurant is small, with bar seating and exposed brick walls. Young daters sat in the front opposite the bar while a birthday party set up in the back lounge area the night of my visit. The atmosphere is hip without the pretentious “-ster” suffix. Most importantly, the staff’s team dynamic, decor and location match the menu and quality of the meal.
