JFAT is an upscale yet casual tavern serving regional American comfort foods, craft beers, cocktails and wines. We have a lively bar scene and Happy Hour. We have an open patio and serve lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Large parties welcomed. In a country so rich in differing food traditions our approach is in a creative take on American regional classics. Our menu features popular regional dishes from around the country but approaches them from an ‘Artisanal’ point of view. “Artisanal cooking” refers to food that is freshly prepared, hand crafted, in small batches, using high quality ingredients, and employing traditional methods. It reflects a devotion to detail and a reverence for the freshest
