Jimmy's No. 43
Posted by Diane on 03/23/2012
Jimmys is a great spot but I think the staff need to talk to each other more. We had two different waitresses in the one night for no discernable reason and when our food took forever, both came back with different stories as to why. Hmmmm, confusing. Nice beer though.

Jimmy's #43 is one of my favorite places to enjoy a tasty meal. The beer selection is excellent, and not the things you'll find on tap everywhere else; there's always enough diversity that there will be at least three I'll try in a sitting. The food is excellent, and pairs well with their beers; the servers are very friendly and can assist with your choices. I hosted an informal board meeting here, and even the vegetarians said that the food was enticing, even the sausage appetizer.

Any time I have a friend in town I bring them to Jimmy's. With incredible beers that are not too pricey, this East Village cellar has some of the best atmosphere around. The music is great, the beer is better, the waitstaff can be a bit disaffected, but they can always recommend something you will like off the beer list. And the risotto - always perfection, always what I order.

This is my favorite spot in the East Village - amazing market food! A fabulous beer & wine list! and the greatest atmosphere around - sexy, cozy and neighborhood-y. I love taking out of town friends as well as locals to this spot - and they always return! Jimmy's No. 43 is a true jewel.

I've been to this cozy bar several times, but it had been a while since my last visit and things seem to have gone down hill. Though the place was far from packed, we waited 20 minutes for the cheese plate, at one point enquiring whether it would arrive soon, to be told, "They're working on it". So I envisioned the chefs hard at work piling little mounds of tasty cheese condiments and carefully slicing some kind of rustic germanic loaf. So imagine our shock and disappointment when all that waiting finally yielded nothing but four small slices of cheese, a spoonful of figs in honey and Carr's Table Water crackers. A. for $12 this is a rip-off B. this would have taken a grand total of 30 seconds to prepare and C. Carr's crackers? Tasteless planks of stale white flour - how is this appropriate?

To start, the place is underground & very pub like. The place is laid back, but the beer & food is working hard to be fun & give quality. The beer list, both on tap & bottle, is not your typical Bud & Miller, it is light to dark listing of U.S. & imported with taste very prominent. They have been carefully [select]ed. The appetizers work with beer sausages & a corn soup that is a great in season warmer. The sliders are a lttle bigger & could have been cooked a little less and the brioche buns need to be softer (if toasted, brought to the tabe sooner), but the sides of greens with delicious yet light dressing and the pan roasted fingerlings wre tasty. The grits & shrip were flavorful, but can be a slight bit tighter and less "soupy." We will be back to try the pork chop and a few other things....The food is cooked to order and you need to be patient, but the crowd is having fun. We also noticed a small stage in the other room and wonder what that is all about? Interesting. Give it a shot...

First I'd like to say that any place that is subterranean automatically makes it cool. That said, i really like the atmosphere and general decor...it has a warm kind of glow, with heavy wooden tables at varying heights, and a sufficiently dark enough bar. Now, let's talk beer! There is always a nice selection, with rotation of new and different beers on a regular basis, and even though i have not had any of the wine there, i have looked over the wine list and that also looks good. Appetizers vary, but there is always a cheese plate and olive bowl(my favorite) The food is hearty and very tasty, but very meat heavy...which can pose a problem, since i am not a meat lover...so a little more chicken or fish would suit me. The staff is nice and friendly, at times goofy, and willing to let you try a taste of the beer before committing. I have also met the actual Jimmy, and he is as welcoming as his establishment. Get there earlyish on the week ends, as it does fill up quick, and is so comfortable, that many tend to hang out...this is not a place for children, so hire a sitter....and careful on the stairs, they are steep!
