Hey Jack served its first Reister Farms lamb last night

The new restaurant from Michelin-starred chef Peter Rudolph opened in Camas last night, and opening night, as quiet as it was, seems to have been a hit. After a year on the road with his family, the former Madera chef joined up with California industry alum Don Riedthaler to open a pseudo-casual restaurant on 4th Avenue. As promised, the menu features Pacific rock fish, salmon, and Reister Farms lamb, as well as a hearty number of vegetable plates like charred cucumber with trout roe and artichokes with eggplant puree. The menu will likely change often, but prices seem to range between $4 to $15 for appetizers and $25 to $29 for entrees.

The restaurant hasn’t made a huge wave on social media yet, but those who hit Hey Jack opening night (or during the VIP dinner) are raving. Local Instagram name Daniel Barnett (@aboyandhiscity) said his dinner at the restaurant was “one of the most memorable meals I’ve had... possibly ever. Nothing was an afterthought. No component was there to just fill out a dish.” Hey Jack doesn’t have a Yelp page yet, but folks who tagged the restaurant on Instagram use words like “delicious,” “heaven,” and “creative.”

Hey Jack now has a working OpenTable for reservations, as well as posted menus on the website. The restaurant is open from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, with a Sunday brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
