If you’re experiencing déjà vu right now, don’t be alarmed. The Jones just looks and sounds familiar because it’s in the same Noho space that used to house Great Jones Cafe. It still has the same bright red exterior and the same bust of Elvis in the window, but now the tiny place is run by the people behind Fedora and Jeffrey’s Grocery, and the menu is seafood-focused, with things like tuna carpaccio, poached prawns, and a big serving of clams in a cajun broth you’ll want to drink straight from the bowl. It’s currently only open for breakfast and lunch, and if we didn’t have jobs, we could see ourselves coming here several times a week for some morning eggs or toast with ricotta.
