ABOUT JJ's Bistro
Opened in 1994 in Ponte Vedra, JJ's has continued to be at the forefront of Jacksonville restaurants repeatedly being listed in the Top 25 Restaurants in Jacksonville. With one of the most unique restaurant concepts, being half a upscale retail store and half a fine dining bistro, success has been nothing shy at this longlasting store. Continuing with his success, JJ in 2004 opened up his second location at Gate Parkway to allow for everyone to be able to enjoy a truly French experience. With a similar concept, the two restaurants haved pushed forward changing the idea of what a restaurant must be. When the recession hit in 2007, instead of closing doors like many local restaurants, JJ expanded his Ponte Vedra location with a new 60 seat private dining room for wine dinners and private events, as well as added an ice cream and chocolate/macaron shop. On October 16, 2o15, JJ was knighted "Chevalier dans l’Order National du Merite Agricole" or Order of Agricultral Merit. There are only 63 knights in the United States, which includes three restauranteurs Jacques Pepin, Paul Prudhomme, and now JJ. Today, you can find JJ as well as his wife and sons, working at both locations in order to ensure an awesome local experience that will make the customer feel as if they had just visited Paris.
