Jackie is an American bistro - international flavors, innovative cocktails, extensive wine list, and a beautiful setting - where one goes to see and be seen.

Jackie culinary team creates a new way to enjoy American cuisine under the gaze of the iconic Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and President John F. Kennedy - the First Couple that dazzled the world with youth and style, revitalizing American culture during the darkest days of the Cold War.

Jackie’s ethereal spirit infuses every aspect of this namesake restaurant, merging the distinctly cool design of the swinging 60s with classically delicious cuisine, a modern cocktail menu and an extensive wine list.

We look forward to welcoming you at JACKIE.
