Imagine this, you are relaxing by the beach in Santa Monica listening to the waves crashing, when your stomach starts growling. What are you going to do? Where will you eat? Everyone in your group wants a different type of food and no one wants to compromise. The solution to your problem is within an arm’s reach from your spot on the sand – Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern.
The large menu caters to a variety of tastes and cuisines. JFAT offers burgers, sandwiches, flatbread pizzas, seafood, fried chicken, meatloaf and an array of appetizers. This eatery is unlike any other restaurant due to their different take on classic food items, “Our menu features popular regional dishes from around the country but approaches them from an ‘Artisanal’ point of view. ‘Artisanal cooking’ refers to food that is freshly prepared, hand crafted, in small batches, using high quality ingredients, and employing traditional methods. It reflects a devotion to detail and a reverence for the freshest ingredients, simple presentations, and an inspired blend of tradition and creativity. ” Simply put, each item on the JFAT menu is prepared fresh and made with love. The ingredients found in the food are like no other. Each bite arouses a different flavor causing an explosion of taste in your mouth.
Now I know what you may be thinking. Summer is coming and I want to get ready for bathing suit season. JFAT not only serves mouth-watering comfort food, but they also have a wide variety of salads, veggies and protein meals. If a healthier meal is what you desire, try: the charred Brussels sprouts, Spice Crusted Seared Ahi salad, Grilled Apricot-Chile Glazed Salmon Salad, Farmer’s Market Greens and Heart of Romaine salad with Grilled Prime Flatiron Steak.
JFAT isn’t just known for their lunch and dinner items, they also offer brunch – with bottomless Champagne! The chicken and waffles are a fan favorite and go perfectly with some bubbly or a Famous (Bloody) Mary.
Bottom line, I love Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern. I’m already dreaming about my next meal…
