Jillian's Restaurant Review: Jillian's, named for owners June and Jay Trubee’s daughter, is housed in an historic 40s-era hacienda, and has tapestry-covered chairs and a collection of antiques that blend nicely with the well-heeled clientele. Jay Trubee is also the chef, and his menu draws from the flavors of northern Italy, southern France and America's Southwest and Eastern seaboard. Pasta, fresh seafood, and quality meat entrées are highlights. Favorites include scallops and sweet corn risotto and rack of Colorado lamb in a Dijon herb crust, as well as steamed pudding for dessert made from locally-grown medjool dates warmed with a whiskey-laced butterscotch sauce and topped with vanilla ice cream. The wine list is long and lengthy with Champagne and sparkling wines coupled with California, Italian and French vintages.
