Jane

On many instances, one of the things that make the work experience what it is is the environment. Whether the place of work is surrounded by business, greenery, or part of an office park, it really impacts the way one operates at the job. In a previous job, before moving overseas, had the prime opportunity of working in between New York City’s Greenwich Village and SoHo. North, south, east, or west, there was always something to see or do.

One of the great lunch spots in the area is Jane, situated right on Houston Street. Also known for their weekend brunch, during the week, the place never disappointed with their offerings, which change seasonally.

A classic, one of the constants, is their Jane Burger. With ingredients stacked high, their signature rosemary fries, and a cold beer, that’s a lunch one doesn’t forget too easily. The burger is cooked to order, juicy with a generous helping of bacon, and those rosemary fries – those come in a large pile on the side of the platter – delicious and filling.

And with lunches like that, it makes the rest of the day a good one.

Sometimes a burger is a burger, other times, it’s a Jane Burger.

Houston

As opposed to the way the city of Houston is pronounced, Houston street is pronounced th way it is shown in the image of a restaurant window.

The street is named for William Houstoun, who was a Georgia delegate to the Continental Congress and to the United States Constitutional Convention in 1787.

It is a bit ambiguous as to why the modern spelling is different since New York City documents of the era show the spelling as “Houstoun.”

It is a common misconception that the street is named for Sam Houston.
