New Fall Dishes at Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern

The Months of October thru January make me crave  fireplaces,  sweaters, ugg boots and  warm dinners. I absolutely love going out to eat and there is a fairly new restaurant in town called “Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern” in Dana Point.

Owner David Wilhelm and Executive Chef Tommy Ferguson have teamed up to create new seasonal items and nightly specials with the robust flavors of fall. The new menu items and seasonal offerings will feature hearty dishes perfect for a crisp, autumn evening on the Dana Point Harbor, such as the Spicy Turkey Chili topped with Cheddar Cheese, Sour Cream and Scallions; the Skillet Roasted Cheddar & Jalapeño Cornbread, or Wilhelm’s favorite, the French Quarter Boil made with fresh Shrimp Clams, Mussels, Andouille Sauce, Red Potatoes and Corn in Spicy Beer & Garlic Broth with Grilled Bread.

Additional autumn inspired specials include: 

– Flatbread with Roasted Butternut Squash, Wild Mushrooms, Leeks, Taleggio, Truffle Oil
– Meatloaf with Bacon Rainbow with Cremini Mushroom Sauce, Mashed Potatoes & Green Beans
