Jack & Charlie's no. 118 is best described as a love letter to old New York, paying tribute to the supper clubs, speakeasies, and icons that made New York City's history so special. Led by Executive Chef/Partner Ed Cotton, the restaurant is offering creative takes on raw bar oysters and shellfish, handmade pastas, wood-fired meats and seafood. It is currently operating in "soft opening mode" until a full rollout in the weeks to come.
