"...Jack Allen's Kitchen (7720 Hwy 71 West)in Oak Hill will donate some of the proceeds from meals purchased in the restaurant today and tonight, Monday, Dec. 30..."
"...Witnessing whiskey orders at a packed bar makes it pretty clear that in the almost 400 years since the beloved brown liquor landed on the official record, and despite countless variations to suit most palates, people choose their whiskey out of habit. Along with his team of fellow bourbon lovers, David Toby, beverage director of Jack Allen's Kitchen and Salt Traders Coastal Cooking, created a hand-selected single barrel whiskey program at their family of four JAK restaurants..."
"...I’m a huge fan of Chef Jack Gilmore, co-owner of Jack Allen’s Kitchen in Oak Hill. His farm-to-table concept using the best ingredients from local purveyors is always evident on his menus..."
"...I was 21; my first great love was an 18-year-old named Antonia. (She, too, gave a literary lesson that year, saying, "I have learned that no one can write fast enough to write a true story.") Her sister Donata worked in a half-way house for the mentally ill in Hell's Kitchen, before that slum got gentrified, when it was still a dangerous place to walk after dark..."
"...With temperatures staying in the upper nineties all week, this is no time to get ambitious in the kitchen. Even when eating out, the idea of someone else turning on the stove in a packed restaurant kitchen is enough to give us sympathy sweats..."
"...The Austin restaurant community is pulling together to help a Second Bar + Kitchen chef and her family recoup after they lost their home and belongings in a February fire. This Saturday (Feb..."
"...26, 2-8pm. Speaking of high spirits, there are still a few tickets available to the Sept. 28 Garrison Brothers dinner at Jack Allen’s Kitchen Oak Hill..."
"...The event was organized seemingly overnight and features some of the boldest names in Austin food including Shawn Cirkiel (Parkside Projects), Tyson Cole (Uchi/Uchiko), Todd Duplechan (Lenoir), Brent Fogerty (Cold Ones Pops), Kevin Fink (Emmer & Rye), Michael Fojtasek (Olamaie), Bryce Gilmore (Odd Duck/Barley Swine), Jack Gilmore (Jack Allen’s Kitchen/Salt Traders Coastal Kitchen), Zach Hunter (The Brewer’s Table), Rick Lopez (La Condesa), the team from McGuire Moorman Hospitality, Yoshi Okai (Otoko), Rene Ortiz and Nayan Desai (Launderette), Zack Perez (Paperboy), Amanda Rockman (South Congress Hotel), Laura Sawicki (Launderette), Max Snyder (Pitchfork Pretty), Callie Speer (Holy Roller), Philip Speer (Bonhomie), Jim Tripi (Eberly), Andrew Wiseheart (Contigo/Chicon), and Nic Yanes (Juniper)...."
"...The neon signs were glowing and the fryer baskets were hot at last night's soft opening of the second outlet of Lucy's Fried Chicken (5408 Burnet Rd.) from chef James Holmes. The new spot is bigger and brighter than the SoCo sibling and includes a larger kitchen, which Holmes said months ago could lead to an expanded menu at this location..."
"...Of course, I also enlisted some of my favorite chefs, whose refined palates continue to inform my own – Roaring Fork chef Adrian Giovanelli, Jack Allen's Kitchen chef/owner Jack Gilmore, Launderette executive chef Rene Ortiz, Hopdoddy Burger Bar chef/co-founder Larry Perdido, and Odd Duck pastry chef Susana Querejazu. And because breakfast tacos are perhaps the best hangover cure ever devised, I thought Hops & Grain Brewery founder Josh Hare and Jack Allen's Kitchen beverage manager David Toby would have an informed opinion..."

"...Jack Allen's Kitchen is celebrated for bringing quality dining to the outskirts. Over the years, co-owners Jack Gilmore and Tom Kamm have expanded his formula of bold Texan cuisine and family-friendly atmospheres into an empire..."
"...There is a much-lauded Jack Allen's Kitchen on-site, but you have to pay $10 for the privilege of walking through the doors of the Intel Club to dine there. While it would be really fun to watch the game while eating locally sourced Frito pie with wild boar chili ($12.99) and a bourbon milkshake on the side, I would much rather have a pre-game dinner at the Jack Allen's Kitchen five miles down the road than have to pay a premium to select from a nearly identical – but much smaller – menu at the ballpark...."
"...On Tuesday, October 23, Jack Allen’s Kitchen Oak Hill celebrates their 10th annual Pepe Z Tequila party. Whether it’s an anniversary, a high school reunion, or a birthday, a decade of anything is something worth celebrating, and Jack Allen’s is doing it in style, with $6 cocktails, food specials inspired by the flavors of Pepe Z, and, of course, live music, so you can sip in style as you contemplate what it is, exactly, that you’ve been up to for the past 10 years...."
"...Gilmore comes from a family of high-profile cooks (older brother to Jack Gilmore of Jack Allen’s Kitchen and uncle to Bryce Gilmore of Barley Swine) and clearly takes his casual po’ boy and taco menu very seriously. Open for lunch and running until midnight (later on the weekends), the kitchen was humming for the large bar crowd early on..."
"...He followed Max Elliot, Executive Director of Urban Roots, who introduced guests and humbly thanked attendees. The attention was then turned to the real rock stars of the day – the enthusiastic team of interns who grew and harvested produce for the multicourse lunch they prepared that morning at Jack Allen’s Kitchen, under the direction of chefs Jack Gilmore and son, Bryce Gilmore, owner of Barley Swine and Odd Duck.

"...Wood spent almost 20 years as food editor for the Chronicle and ran a local wholesale dessert and catering business, At Home on the Range, for more than 15 years. Having worked in the Fonda San Miguel kitchen and later selling her baked goods wholesale to Kerbey Lane Cafe, Katz's Deli, and other local restaurants, Wood was already well known in the food community before she began writing restaurant reviews in 1993...."
