Barbuto owner and chicken master Jonathan Waxman is opening the doors to Jams tonight for the first time since the 1980's. The remake of the Cali cuisine classic is on the ground floor of the new 1 Hotel Central Park. The connection to the original isn't going to smack anyone in the face, but it's there for those who look. The menu offers two dishes from the original: Jams pancakes made with red pepper, smoked salmon, corn sauce, creme fraiche and caviar and the Jams chicken, which is made with tarragon butter. Other menu items seem to fit within the modern menu canon: squid ink rigatoni with crab, garlic, and chili; a kale salad; and pizzette with pesto, goat cheese, mozzarella, squash blossoms, and cherry tomatoes. Check out the full menu below.
