The August Jack
At The August Jack, organic produce and proteins that are both sustainably gathered and ethically raised are used to create a concise, seasonally changing menu. With these ingredients in hand, their staff whips up mains such as a filet mignon seasoned with thyme and peppercorn. In addition to steaks, the restaurant also tends to showcase the seafood of the Pacific Northwest on their Ocean Wise–certified menus. However, most of their emphasis is placed on tapas, which can range from popcorn tossed in truffle-infused butter to mussels braised in pilsner beer.
In fact, each of these small plates is designed to pair with one of The August Jack's craft beers. Like the restaurant's menu, the extensive selection of local and international craft beers rotates frequently and even includes several gluten-free options, a tastier alternative to water served in a beer-scented mug. Brews aside, The August Jack's bartenders also supply plenty of wine and cocktails, include a bourbon sour infused with the sweetness of organic vanilla beans. As diners sip, they take in the restaurant's warm, rustic ambience, marked by high-backed, distressed-leather booths and wooden accents throughout the dining room.
