Used to be your pickle spot was a guy in the Lower East Side with a barrel full of half sours and some rubber gloves. Now your guy is Jacob and he's got a nice place on the Upper West Side. The world has changed. Those who can flow with it will benefit greatly: Jacob's specializes in pickled goods (special sours, hot sours, candy red beets, salt and pepper asparagus, sweet and spicy carrots, sour green tomatoes), biscuits from scratch, and craft beer -- all of which is available for takeaway or to eat in the restaurant. Dining in also means a full menu of comfort food like shrimp served with bacon grits, a buttermilk fried chicken sandwich served on a biscuit with spicy pickles, a biscuit-house cheeseburger, and drinks ranging from house cocktails (Dickel Back, Rosemary Vodka Lemonade) to American craft beer to three types of root beer on tap. Send your old pickle guy a card.
