There’s no question Iowa has great food, but most people’s favorite restaurants trend toward the traditional. However, one hotel restaurant in Davenport has the state’s most surprising menu. The J Bar, a unique fusion restaurant in Iowa, takes the standard hotel model of a cocktail bar serving upscale cuisine and infuses it with a wild array of international dishes. You can mix and match Italian, Latin, and Korean food to make the perfect meal – or go all-in with some fusion dishes you’ve never seen before. To chase your meal, you’ll be able to indulge in the creations from the cocktail bar. It’s definitely not the kind of restaurant you’d expect to find in the parking lot of a Davenport Holiday Inn – but Iowa is full of surprises, and you’ll be glad you found it.
