“Jacob’s Pickles is not just a restaurant; it is a community.”
Launched in 2011, Jacob’s Pickles has quickly become a New York staple for those in search of a good meal. Warm and inviting, friends travel daily to its doors on the Upper West Side for a taste of home, something more than just another trending hotspot.
This is a place where faces light up when the plate arrives, where people feel relaxed and excited to try new and old favorites. It is a space where our customers feel at home.
The popularity of our Southern Comfort Classics caught the attention of TimeOut garnering us a quick-service spot in the coveted TimeOut Market, a multi level warehouse that’s home to local NYC food and drink vendors that have uniquely established themselves as ‘the best of’.
JACOB’S PICKLES has since become a smash hit at TimeOut Market and is proud to be a top vendor in historic Dumbo, Brooklyn as well as our Flagship restaurant on the Upper West Side.
The son of a restaurateur, Jacob has been passionate about food and design for as long as he can remember. Early on he spent a semester abroad in the Czech Republic, where he fell in love with art, architecture, and artisanal beer. As a student and fencing competitor he traveled widely throughout the United States, and became fascinated with regional specialties and local spice and ingredients. In 2008, Jacob opened Mmmac and Cheese which soon became a go-to destination for comfort food in Boston’s quincy market. Building on his success, he set his sights back on the big apple and realized his dream of bringing food, drink and design to New York city-and is proud to be a part of how food is changing the face of the Upper West side scene.
