Jack Tar & The Colonel’s Daughter is getting a new patio popup concept, Otoño, which will be led by Pizzeria Toro Chef de Cuisine Marla Thurman. If you’re a “Chopped” fan (We are), you’ll recognize her from winning the cooking competition in March. Otoño, which means “autumn” in Spanish, will open today and continue to serve as long as fall weather permits outdoor seating. The menu highlights Thurman’s Texas heritage and features Mexican dishes, including Agua Frescas, Tostadas with citrus ceviche and Seafood Tortas and vegan dishes including Tamales made with housemade masa, Pambazos with mushroom chorizo; Fried Chile Rellenos with tofu queso fresco; and Chocolate Tortes with chili and orange candies. Jack Tar’s signature menu items including its double cheeseburger, Szechuan Peppercorn Hot Chicken, pancakes and made-to-order crullers will also be available. Jack Tar’s cocktail bar is also moving to the patio. There will be contactless ordering and payment, plus outdoor counter service and curbside pickup. Staff are required to wear masks. 100% of the profits of Otoño will be donated to Urban Ministries to help fight food insecurity in Durham. Open for dinner and cocktails Wednesday – Sunday, 5 – 9 pm, brunch service will begin on September 19 and continue on Saturday & Sundays, 10 am – 2 pm.
