Valley mega-project The Village at Westfield Topanga keeps right on chugging along, adding new concepts seemingly by the day. The next arrival? Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern, which currently offers outlets in San Diego and Dana Point.

Per this piece from the OC Weekly back in 2013, Jimmy’s is the brainchild of one David Wilhelm, who gained a fair share of notoriety in the Orange County dining scene of the past two decades. Wilhelm previously operated French 75 and Chat Noir, before the recession made it hard to stay sustainable, so he took a few years off and retooled with the casual pub concept Jimmy's. The first location landed at Point Loma in San Diego, with a second outlet further up the coast in Dana Point.

Now his third iteration is complete in Woodland Hills, and features the same sort of casual lunch and dinner vibe as its predecessors. That means anything from lobster sliders and truffle fries to burgers, flatbreads, and meatier mains like steak or short rib. There’s also a full bar on site, a weekday happy hour, and weekend brunch.

Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern opens today at the Village at Westfield Topanga, and will keep daily hours Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to evening. Sundays focus on brunch beginning at 10 a.m., with dinner service commencing at 3 p.m.
