Hg2 : The Hedonist


It’s the place of two-hour waits and the place where the chef does shots with the customers. Led by the frenetic, and often boxer-clad, chef Jacques Leonardi, Jacques-Imo’s Café has become the kind of secret place that everyone knows about. Some people love it. Some people loathe it. The monster-sized portions of grilled duck breasts, stuffed pork chops, or savory bread pudding with alligator sausage can quench an appetite for a week. It’s not unusual, however, to have overcooked food or sauces that should never have left the kitchen. After drinking for a few hours while waiting on a table, few of the young folks or tourists complain or even notice.
