This "guy" turned out to be Jack Leonardi. I think of him as someone you would meet in the mythical place of Margaritaville; wearing
a Hawaiian shirt, flip-flops and walking around with a drink in hand.
I wound up eating dinner at Jaques-Imo's
after walking there to check the place out.

Within 15 minutes of opening
the place was packed and a line out the door! Something here must be right.
This place is so laid back but don't be fooled. The cooks, servers and waiters are running around all over the place which is why they all wear sneakers
The waiters here REALLY know their menu in and out and are among the most accommodating I've ever come across. This probably is a result of the "coaching" session I witnessed
when I walked into the middle of it before the restaurant opened. That was interesting
My dinner this night is what is pictured along with a 20 ounce or so fresh watermelon mojito made with at least 4 tablespoons of watermelon. A salad of baby
spinach topped with a fried oyster
began the meal along with delicious corn muffins drizzled in garlic sauce, a great tasting duo.

Somehow over the years I overlooked this establishment, but I'm very glad I finally made it. Between you and me, it's far and away from the building with the
striped awning on Washington Avenue, and I got to wear shorts!!
Not to be missed.
