Owner/mixologist Jimmy Yeager is legendary for his namesake restaurant/bar. Located in a swanky upstairs spot off of Mill Street, Jimmy’s is a study in Aspen-cool. Picture windows have stellar views of Ajax, and though there’s a separate dining room, bar seating is the most coveted (there’s also a back patio).More important, however, is the bar program, which focuses on classic and house cocktails and premium spirits, done right. Jimmy’s is as renown as its ice program as anything- he makes his own 300-pound blocks and turns them into two-inch, signature BFIC’s (that’s Big Fucking Ice Cube, fyi) used in special drinks. It’s not just a gimmickry- a larger cube means less dilution of the beverage, and the purified water keeps the cocktail stank- and off-flavor-free. Tuck into comforting classics like steak, meatloaf, buffalo burgers, or bbq chicken.
