Jackson 20 Blends Many Characteristics. This popular and convivial restaurant, in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, draws a crowd from all walks of Washington life. Perhaps because so many styles are in play here, from elegant to casual to contemporary to traditional. The food and drink are inspired, affordable and local. Virginia wines combine with regional beers and a menu that highlights contemporary American cuisine. Whet your appetite with piquant fried green tomatoes; try the pan-roasted rockfish with fried okra; or sink your teeth into a hearty serving of buttermilk fried chicken.
The décor is reminiscent of a colonial tavern. An iconic bronze statue presides over the room as a symbol of hospitality and abundance. Reclaimed brick, stone, leather, and wood set the visual tone, creating a warm welcome for people from all over the world. Including you. Any night of the week, you can toast friends and family with whisky cocktails, a Jackson 20 specialty.
