Welcome to this month’s edition of Local Lovin’. Laurel and I are sharing another favorite from Jackson.
My local lovin’ is actually a sad pick – my favorite restaurant in Jackson, La Finestra, is closing on Sunday. But I couldn’t not write about them. In my opinion, it is THE BEST restaurant in Jackson.
La Finestra (translates to “the window” in Italian) is located in downtown Jackson right across from the Governor’s mansion. It is an AMAZING Italian restaurant that focuses on local, in season ingredients. They also make their own pasta in the basement, which is so cool (if you don’t know, my family is Italian, and my dad makes his own pasta, so this is super impressive to me).
So when I heard they were closing this coming Sunday, I texted the hubs and insisted we go immediately. So we did. We had a fantastic meal.
I was a bad blogger and ate half of the food before I realized I didn’t take any pictures. We had flounder cakes for an appetizer which were amazing (and gone in like 5 seconds). Then we had ravioli stuffed with ricotta and salami (I did get a picture of that). Then I had flounder (which I took a picture of after I started eating), the hubs had pork and polenta. We shared brussel sprouts. And then for dessert we sharing the most amazing deconstructed tiramisu ever. (again, no picture…)
So, if you are in Jackson, or can get here, I highly recommend you get to La Finestra THIS WEEK. You will not regret it.
Now, head over to The Hive and check out Laurel’s Local Lovin’ pick for this month!
