Have you been to Jimmy’s on a Saturday afternoon recently? When we pulled up, it looked like they were hosting a wedding reception or something. Cars and people everywhere. Luckily, we swooped in and found a parking spot right by the side door. There were cars all up and down the street. Hub had called ahead. So, we had our Cuban sandwiches in just a few minutes. We grabbed a couple of beers and sat at the bar overlooking the street.
Jimmy’s may have been filled with beautiful people this Saturday afternoon, but Bryan & Fitzhugh is still Bryan & Fitzhugh. As we sat there munching our fabulous sandwiches and drinking Spaten from the bottle, we watched a lunatic punching a metal telephone pole with his fist. Interesting. Would have been a little less amusing if I had been sitting at one of the tables outside the restaurant. Even a lunatic knows when he’s out-numbered. He moved along quickly.
Despite how many people were packed into this place, we were able to order our sausage and meatballs and check out relatively quickly. We got the mild Italian and tried a new one; parsley and cheese. I’ll let you know what we think of the second choice once we try it. Hubbard asked Mike about the crowd as he rang up our deli purchase along with some cherry Bordeaux ice cream. He said, “12 to 3”. Evidently it’s a madhouse between noon and 3:00 on Saturdays. So, now you know, folks. If we want to have some personal space at Jimmy’s on Saturday, get there early or after 3:00. If you want to see and be seen, hopefully you can nab a good parking spot.
