NEW Changes to Casa Jimenez 03/12/2015
Starting this week The Tapas/Food consumption side of the business will be closed Tuesdays - Thursdays and will only be open Fridays and Saturdays starting at 5 pm and closing at 9 pm. We are still available for private functions/special events (i.e. musical events, charities, pharma parties, etc will all have food service) during the week. The retail store will continue operating normally Tuesday - Saturday from 1 pm - 8 pm.
You will still be able to consume wine by the glass or by the bottle through out the week in the retail store however, seating is limited. We will have a Vino temp machine, by the register, with 4 bottles of wine so that you may order different wines by the glass if you wish.
Also an idea to keep in mind is that you can always buy your wine from Casa J and take it to which ever restaurant you're going to. You will then only have to pay a corkage fee, at the restaurant you are going to, but you're still saving money since wine is sold at restaurants and bars at double to triple the retail price, fyi.
