Jam a classic Ukrainian Village breakfast stop, and a perfect start to the day. Who can’t like the cheery interior with all the bright pops of green from the chilewich placemats amidst the plexi-chairs and the fun wall scones that throw pretty damask patterns on the wall. Then add in the delightful creations from the kitchen that are not only delicious but visually stunning. AND it is no wonder the food is so good, the kitchen is helmed by Chef Jeffrey Mauro, with a pedigree background from the likes of Charlie Trotter’s and North Pond. All the breakfast staples are here, but they have been given a new personality that is bright shiny and bound to become your favorite take on the classics. Let me demonstrate: Eggs Benedict they come on an english muffin, with perfect poached eggs but they add crispy pork belly and this week was a seasonal pea puree that had me licking the plate. All in all I have never been disappointed and the service is always great which helps add to the pleasant experience.
