“Excellent Dinner at Jimmy's Bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Small, quaint bistro - right off of Atlantic Avenue. Not a lot of places in the area like this one. There are no menus, order off of the huge chalkboard behind the bar. (yes, there's a small bar- beer/wine). Reading the menu choices, I can tell you it was hard to make a decision. We ended up getting the homemade mozzarella and tomatoes with basil and balsamic - the mozzarella melted in your mouth. Also had the beet & goat cheese salad - it was excellent, and I'm not a huge beet fan - all of the flavors worked together. For dinner, we had the shrimp etouffe -5 huge shrimp over basmati rice, fresh swordfish - the server told us it was local and just came in that day..and lobster ravioli. All excellent dishes. I haven't had a great meal to rave about in a long time. Make a reservation as it is a small place.

“great place to dine!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

We really enjoyed our recent meal at Jimmy's. It is a wonderful, small and charming spot. The staff is knowledgeable and the chef/owner is "right there" since the kitchen is in the back of the restaurant and can chat with some of the patrons.
And of course, the food was excellent.

“Small & Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

A real find. A small storefront restaurant on a side street. Limited menu but well executed. REservations are a must because of the size.
