Jimmy's Diner

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.

Two words: breakfast bowls. A few more words: don't come here on a diet (but do come when you're hungover). The best $9 you'll ever spend on brunch is called the Tater Heaven and it will save you from all of life's, and alcohol's, ailments.


Just bring cash and be prepared to wait a little, but it's so worth it. Plus, you're close enough to McCarren Park to walk off the calories later.
