Black Sheep is one of the newer eateries in the Riverside/Avondale
district, and like its sister restaurant, Orsay, its opening late last year was widely anticipated. Like Orsay, its physical design/decor, and notably fresh, home grown menu ingredients are perpetuating what has become a new standard for dining in Jacksonville
, especially with the savvy foodies that tend to frequent that part of town.
Since its opening last October, it has garnered favorable reviews for lunch and dinner. It's upscale urban, with a minimalist feel to the menu, as they are clearly emphasizing the artisan nature of their offerings. The newest wrinkle for Black Sheep is Sunday Brunch, which kicked off with a soft opening in Mid-February. We were delightfully pleased to take part, and equally delighted with the food and service. Where it is fashionable to serve uber-sized brunch entrees, as is the case with Orsay and Metro Diner, for example, the portions at Black Sheep were more subdued, but no less tasty.
