White Truffle French Fries
Jake's has an extensive craft beer selection on draft and handles rotate seasonally.
Most shipboard doctors recommend a warm atmosphere, hearty food and a few stiff drinks as the perfect cure-all for sailors looking to unwind after months at sea. So if you feel like you could use some shore leave, chart a course for this welcoming neighborhood fixture.
From the moment you walk in, you get the distinct impression that you’re in a friendly haven for wayward mariners. The owner’s grandfather, Edwin "Jake" Jablonski, was a chemist for the Navy, and his seafaring past is honored throughout the restaurant. Black and white pictures of aircraft carriers line the hallway to the bathrooms, a porthole-styled mirror adorns a wall by the bar and the specialty cocktail list is filled with options like the Shipwreck, the Starboard, and the Land Ho. Jake’s work as a scientist isn’t forgotten either; wine is served in chemistry beakers instead of carafes.
The dishes here are mostly familiar favorites, but executive chef Michael E. Degginger always adds a personal spin. Golden fries are elevated to rich, aromatic new heights with white truffle oil and a side of sun-dried tomato aioli. The Samurai Burger isn’t your typical patty – it’s glazed with teriyaki sauce and topped with pineapple chutney and melted Swiss cheese. And the mussels sit in an Eastern-inspired broth infused with coconut, lemongrass and cilantro.
Add into the mix a solicitous waitstaff, five flat screens over the bar and an extensive beer list and you have the perfect port of call for enjoying some much-deserved R&R.
