Setting and Atmosphere
Jiko has a special ambience, from the young African exchange students who greet guests as they enter to a menu of unusual tastes. Jiko's spacious dining room is inspired by the opening scenes of The Lion King. A pair of large wood-burning ovens dominates the center of the room.
Wood-fired flatbreads; trio of dips with house-made naan (Indian flatbread); oak-grilled filet mignon with red-wine sauce and sweet-corn risotto; maize-crusted corvine.
Grilled shrimp curry, braised beef short rib, grilled marinated lamb loin, and a selection of artisanal cheeses.
Jiko has been winning awards and accolades (including AAA's Four Diamond Award) for its interesting fare and stellar wine list - one of the largest collections of South African wines in any North American restaurant, with more than 1,800 bottles. Dishes are beautifully spiced and full of flavor. Start with some flatbread and wrap up with the Tanzanian chocolate crÃ¨meux - a mousselike concoction with chocolate crunch, chocolate-cherry mascarpone, and cocoa nibs.
