We haven’t been to the Jamison Publick House for a couple of years. What a difference! We remember the place mainly for it’s pub food. They now have an outstanding dinner menu with food quality to match the nicest of restaurants. Not only is the main dish exceptional, but the side dishes as well (the smoky beans with my scallops were almost as good as the scallops). There was clearly care placed in the selection of ingredients and the flavors brought out in everything.
Last night we had the perfect meal. It couldn’t have been better. We chose to sit outside for the first time and the patio was very comfortable. The tables are spaced nicely so you aren’t too close to the next table. From the opening cocktail, a well-mixed Bellini martini, to the fresh salad to my entrée of a lamb shank, swiss chard and an interesting rice pilaf, everything was delicious. My husband enjoyed his huge pub-fare turkey club and sweet-potato fries just as much. Even the coffee was delicious.
The place is wonderful: quaint, cozy, comfortable and stylish. They have real candles on the tables and in the windows – none of the fake battery operated candles from China.
The beer menu has lots of local drafts – the one I chose, based on Heather’s recommendation was perfect. Actually, I relied on Heather to choose my meal. The short ribs were out of this world. Even though the portion was large, the flavor was so good, the meat was so tender, the sauce, the pasta, wow – it was all so good, I wanted to lick the plate (but because it is a classy place, I showed self-restraint).
