What is the difference between jeść and jadać?

I think:

jesc- to eat - it is just standard infinitive

jadac- to eat ( from time to time )

Jadać - to eat something regularly or at the same place np Kolacje jadam w domu. (I have/eat dinner at home)
If compared to English it expresses the simple aspect.

Codziennie JEM kolacje w domu. vs. JADAM od czasu do czasu w restauracji "Kaczma".

'Kaczma' - what a nice name for a restaurant. The person behind the idea probably can't pronounce 'r' or doesn't know Polish :)))))))))

Jem/Jadam kolacje w domu - I eat dinner at home.
Jem kolację teraz - I'm having dinner now.
Jadam kolację teraz is incorrect.

a native speaker of Polish here :))))

@kaprys
It would be OK for a KARCZMA that serves mostly DUCK dishes :P
I'm Polish

technically speaking jadać is a frequentative of jeść (describes repeated situation)

Precisely what I showed. Apropos, maybe "Kaczma" is a misspelling. Probably is.
