Two Reviews

The great thing about being reviewed is that it is much like having the opportunity to find out what people say about you behind your back. Humbly, we submit to you some things overheard at The New York Times.

"Jimmy's No. 43 is a cozily candlelit below-ground spot that screams speakeasy but is actually a former Ukrainian social hall. It has been serving the Brooklyn-born Sixpoint Bengali Tiger I.P.A — a hoppy beer with a sharp first blast of taste — and recently had Chelsea Double Imperial cask ale from the medieval looking machine in the back that pumps out the naturally carbonated, room-temperature brew that is the signature of cask ale." - Seth Kugel

They've also been talking about us over at The Gothamist.

"Lately we’ve come to realize that there’s much more to this subterranean spot than just beer. Thanks to the addition of Philip Kirschen-Clark, the former fish chef at wd-50, Jimmy’s is putting the gastro in gastropub... As for the taste, let’s just say it was an ovine orgy of sumptuous flesh so tender that it could have been eaten with a spoon. Kirschen-Clark should venture out to Rego Park to show the cooks at the nabe's dozen or so Uzbek kebab joints specializing in lamb how better to practice their craft." -Joe DiStefano

We hope to tempt you to read the full reviews featured in our new Review Links section to the right. Happy reading!
