Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

Jim and Neesie, Generator Miami’s lobby bar with an elaborate origin story, doles out delicious comfort staples and elaborate snacks—but it isn’t calling itself a restaurant. Named after a fictitious husband and wife, the inviting, dimly space is designed to feel like you’re spending the evening at the couple’s home. Like what happens in someone’s living room, bartenders are servers and go by servetenders, taking your order and mixing your drink tableside (which seven out of the 10 drinks on the list call for). The only person not pulling double duty at Jim and Neesie is chef Daniel Roy, who comes to the restaurant from Matador Room. He’s strictly focused on the tightly edited food menu that mixes American classics, like burgers and succulent oysters, with global eats such as the Morrocan-inspired citrus roasted carrots over spiced yogurt and the crispy octopus atop a flavorful romesco sauce. Chef Roy’s cacio e pepe might not seem like an outright choice for a bar, but it’s quite possibly the lightest, most alfredo-like pasta you’ll try.
