In the 19th century, upscale restaurants asked that wealthy patrons wear no fewer than two monocles, and that all pocket watches be collected at the door to discourage timed pork-pie-eating contests. Get a taste of fine dining without all the rules and regulations with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of upscale cuisine at Jimmy's on Broadway, located at the Silver Cloud Hotel in Capitol Hill. This deal is not valid for happy-hour specials.
Jimmy's on Broadway offers diners an extensive all-day menu filled with inventive, extravagant fare including robust salads and robe-busting burgers and sandwiches. The cone 'o' fries ($6), a popular appetizer, starts things off with garlic- and rosemary-garnished French fries served in a triangular receptacle recycled from the dunce caps of an earlier, duncier century. Mixed greens and avocado-topped romaine join crispy fried onion strings and barbecue-dressed poultry for the Thai BBQ chicken salad ($12), while the avocado-bacon Swiss burger ($11) delivers exactly what it promises, plus a side of fries and the faint, flattering flush associated with the onset of bovine telekinesis. Diners who prefer their meat freed from its bread fetters can sink their canines into a 12-ounce rib eye steak ($27), basted in rosemary-thyme butter and served with fresh vegetables. Jimmy's full-service breakfast menu silences the chirruping stomachs of early birds with brioche French toast ($10), or lighter offerings such as the veggie-heavy egg white frittata ($10).
With its extensive drink menu, Jimmy's plies patrons with top-shelf martinis and specialty drinks such as the weather-inspired, rum-enhanced dark and stormy ($9). Wine direct from Washington, California, and Oregon is available by the bottle or glass, and local microbrew beer is always on tap. With flat-panel televisions lining Jimmy's laid-back bar area, sippers and suppers can stay apprised of the game while enjoying an upscale culinary experience that beats eating caviar in a tuxedo T-shirt on Cutoff Khaki Fridays.
While the newly opened Jimmy's on Broadway has yet to grab many reviews, sister restaurant Jimmy's on First gets an average of three stars from Yelpers and an average of four owl eyes from TripAdvisors:
