UPDATE: We are fully booked inside but have tables available on our fully heated patio. The forecast was saying rain for Thanksgiving but this has suddenly improved. Weather permitting we are now accepting reservations for patio seating.
We are very excited to be hosting our first ever THANKSGIVING DINNER at Jaynes.
Jaynes is open this Thanksgiving and will be serving a prix fixe Traditional Roast Turkey Dinner with all the trimmings.
Dinner will be served in 3 courses starting with an appetizer course followed by a generous roast turkey main event and of course dessert! Vegetarian options will also be available. Reservations will be accepted between 3pm and 7pm. Dinner is $45 per adult and $25 for children 12 and under plus beverage, tax and gratuity. The wee ones, 5 and under are free.
Jayne, Jon and family will be here and hope to spend this very festive day with you!
Never tasted Negroamaro? Well Join us at Jaynes on Saturday November 2nd from 4-6pm for a tasting of the Cantele wines from Italy’s beautiful coastal heel, Puglia. Winemaker Paolo Cantele and Jeremy Parzen of Dobianchi.com will be leading us on this journey. There is probably no better chance to learn in depth about italian wines than hanging out with these two guys!
Tasting is $15 and includes appetizers.
For those who wish to dine after the tasting, we recommend making reservations. We hope to see you there!
I got to visit my dear friend Ameliana while she was living in Zurich in 2005. She was on her teacher’s break so a group of us girls hopped an Easyjet to Barcelona. Those two cities could not have been more different. Barcelona seemed almost free ($) in comparison to Switzerland. We rented a flat in the gothic quarter and well, did as the Spanish do. Our first meal of the day would consist of red wine and cured meats. This seems crazy for breakfast, but when clubs and bars don’t even get going till 1 am it is pretty typical to rise closer to lunch time. We awoke so late one day that everything had already closed for siesta. We ate at a few different tapas bars, the next better than the last, but were lucky when we wandered into Cal Pep.
Even luckier was that the owner Pep Manubens was there to cook for us. We sat at the bar and drank beer with lemonade AKA Clara. Nothing like an English Shandy, it was more fresh and citrusy. We got to watch everything being prepared and there was no need for menus. You just mentioned what you were in the mood for and they made it. There was a special toaster for the Pan Con Tomate and I watched them rub down the grilled bread with the juiciest tomatoes. So simple and so good. Next they prepared Tortilla Espanola to order in a cast iron skillet, which was more like a fluffy omelette compared to what I have had here in the states. There was also loads of seafood, which could be different everyday. Pep was amazing, talking us through all the dishes in his raspy, memorable voice. We must have been there a while because by the time we left there were people waiting three deep behind us for our seats! It was by far the most expensive tapas meal we had but worth every penny. When anyone tells me they are going to Barcelona, I write Cal Pep down for them and make them promise me they will go. This meal inspired lots of dishes here at Jaynes over the years and might be why I had to have an open kitchen.
Next week on Tuesday October 22, Jaynes will be hosting a Spanish Wine Dinner featuring some of our favorite wines from around the country paired with classic dishes. We will be joined by Spanish Wine expert Alex Stuempfig of Eric Solomon Selections. Alex and Jaynes go way back and he’s a super fun host and educator. The dinner will be held on the patio and is a excellent opportunity to drink some 6 world class wines paired with an outstanding Spanish 5 course menu plus amuse. We keep these dinners small and intimate so we encourage you to make your reservation soon. We hope you will join us!

To help you revel in the greatness of beer we are featuring the original Schneider Weisse Hefe-weizen ale on draft, which has been perfectly brewed since 1872. We are also featuring Erdinger Oktoberfest and Weihenstephaner Oktoberfest. If you want stay true to German tradition ask Sarah to add a splash of Waldmeister (woodruff flavored syrup) or Himbeer (raspberry flavored syrup) to your Trumer Pilsner or Weisse beer.

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!
