It all started in Jimmy's childhood kitchen, on the fringe of Boston Mass. At the ripe old age of 5, Jimmy lost his Mother. His Air Force Colonel Father had 3 mouths to feed, and had to be quick about it. Aggressive and lightning fast in the kitchen, the Colonel was hollering, "Get in here, food's hot!" before Jimmy and his siblings could finish a game of checkers.
Eventually, out of necessity, Jimmy's Father taught his kids how to cook for themselves. While other kids were learning how to chuck a baseball, Jimmy was learning the finer points of grade A ground chuck, and how to turn leftovers into legacies.
Between the Colonel's short-order style, and his Jamaican nanny's bold flavors, Jimmy came to savor straight-up, un-complicated, hotdamn-delicious, authentically good food.
Jimmy's various career successes had him traveling left-to-right, top-to-bottom. In every city he's found himself, his mantra has become: Find out what this place is made of, and eat & drink the best of it.
Over time, and in every neighborhood he's called home, Jimmy's become famous for his unfussy, nostalgic, Frycook-meets-Foodie specialties. One night after a legendary bout with the grill and somewhere between 2 and 12 outstanding microbrews, Jimmy decided to take it to the people. Rallying some of the best in the business, Jimmy's Famous American Tavern was born.
Authentic, delicious, real... comfort food for the Foodie. Get in here. We're bringing it!
