We are so excited to welcome back our good friend and former Jaynes sommelier Jeremy Parzen Ph.D as the host of our upcoming Do Bianchi Italia Wine Dinner. Jeremy is considered amongst the world’s foremost scholars on Italian wine and his blog Do Bianchi has become an online Italian wine encyclopedia that serves as a dynamic and entertaining reference for the wine world. He is a great speaker and super cool guy that really gets the soul of the country. On Tuesday September 17th at 7:30pm Jeremy will be guiding us through a pairing of food and wines from his beloved Italy. There will be 5 courses paired with 6 wines from around the country and a ton of great inside information you won’t find in the pages of Wine Spectator! The dinner will be held on the patio and will be very intimate with limited seating. We urge you to reserve your seat very soon. See you there!

We’re so proud of our longtime friend of Jaynes the Akin family and their launch of Benchmark Brewing. Father and son team Jim and Matt Akin have put together a great operation and tasting room down in Mission Gorge. We’ve been tight with the family for many years as Matt worked his way up to head brewer at legendary SD brewery Alesmith. Matt has always had a knack for food friendly beers and we’re proud to now be pouring the Benchmark IPA. Good luck guys and see you at the bar!

Our Wiener Schnitzel has become so popular with guests that we slid down to the Batcave to create a dedicated logo (ca ’66) to alert the faithful. This will be seen on our site and Facebook whenever we are serving it. For the uninitiated our take on the Austrian National dish is made with tender, pounded and breaded Duroc pork, housemade gruyere spaetzle with broccolini and fresh lemon and is our most requested special. We will be serving it all week.
For the beer pairing we are featuring a the Lomaland Saison on draft from a brand new brewery here in San Diego, Modern Times. Love this name. It reminds me of the great bookstore by the same name on Valencia and 20th in SF. We’ve yet to meet this crew in person, but from the taste of their beers we can already tell they are fellow travelers and will see some tap time at Jaynes. The Lomaland is their take on the Belgian Farmhouse ale style know as Saison. This is a great food beer and will be a good friend to our Schnitzel!
We hope to see you all this week!

Yes, its the day you wait all year long for, National Filet Mignon Day. Well for this wonderful made-up holiday we are rolling out two of our most delicious steak lovers dishes as well as an All Premier Cru Burgundy Flight!
Bacon wrapped 6 oz Filet Mignon with garlic mashed potatoes, puree of fresh, white corn, asparagus, baby carrots and shallot butter. 27.00
Carpaccio of Filet Mignon with wild arugula, aged parmesan and lemon vinaigrette. 12.50
We put together an incredible all Premier Cru Burgundy Flight to pair with the Filet and Carpaccio. Burgundy has become increasingly expensive and we have developed a knack for digging out the reasonably priced gems. We’ll be opening these a few hours in advance to check and decant. 25.00 (should be $35 but we really want people to order it!)
To start we are pouring the 2006 Hubert Lamy St. Aubin Premier Cru En Remilly. Hubert Lamy is considered by many as the king of St. Aubin and this bottle certainly makes a good case for it. Intense minerality on this one. St. Aubin is one of the lesser known gems that adjoins the great (and exorbitantly priced) Chassagne Montrachet vineyards. This is a great chance to try some great white burgundy with a bit of age. I can’t find a fault with this bottle.
Next we will be pouring the 2010 Domaine Faively Mercurey Clos Des Myglands 1er Cru. While Mercurey does not always maintain the highest reputation, the Faiveley Clos des Myglands Monopole gives a good name to this classic region and has become a Burgundy lover’s secret.
Last but not least we will be pouring the 2009 La Pousse d’Or Santenay Clos Tavannes 1er Cru. It is such a pleasure to pour this superstar wine from Volnay. 80 years vines originally sourced from DRC. We’ll been pouring this for the past few vintages and have fallen in love with this intense wine.
We hope to see you all tonight!
