Enjoy a martini at Jay’s Bistro tonight … your glass is chilling!




The martini conjures up images in black and white, trim men with trim ties, Sean Connery, Audrey Hepburn and always, Frank Sinatra.  The martini is a remnant of an era we miss, when beef was a staple and people smoked on TV.  Experts have long disagreed about the correct way to make a martini, with vodka or gin – shaken or stirred – an olive or a twist.  A classic glass that makes all hands graceful.  However, a martini is only partly about the way it looks and tastes.  The rest of it is the clinking of glasses, sincere conversation, the music of friends and a warm inviting place to enjoy it.
