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.
