Brooklyn – Williamsburg
2577 Union Ave between North 10th and 11th Sts, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
To a certain degree, the low-rent rep owner Josh Cohen forged at Park Slope"s Biscuit BBQ survives at this shabby Billyburg greasy spoon. Though fried chicken lacked for a craggy texture, and a generic "money-back" brownie didn"t deliver, Jimmy"s does offer the occasional stroke of genius. The brilliant Williamsburger combines a juicy patty with a crisp latke and tart applesauce, and deep-fried deviled eggs stand in contrast with more traditional versions. Like any proper diner, Jimmy"s isn"t a destination, but it is a fine place to dry out after a night of drinking.
