MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Even in its new digs, Jam remains the sweetheart of brunch-o-philes who won’t settle for some greasy spoon. White walls and stone tables punctuated by lime-green placemats give a gallery-like feel to the space; while a friendly welcome and open kitchen keep things homey. Creative and refined versions of weekend favorites set this kitchen apart. For instance, French toast features brioche slices soaked in vanilla and malt-spiked custard, cooked sous vide and then caramelized in a sizzling pan. Garnished with lime leaf-whipped cream and pineapple compote, this staple is sure to cure any hangover. Eggs benedict, with house-made English muffins bested with eggs, black garlic mayo, spring onion pureé and juicy slabs of pork belly, is a thrill.
