Thanks to a tip (comment) from Anonymous a few days ago, I went to Jimmy’s on this, my last night in NYC. Down a flight of dark stairs and into what felt like a medieval tavern on East 7th (#43, between 2nd & 3rd). You know how you enter a room and everything feels right? Had several glasses of Greenport Hoppy Stout and excellent pasta dish and talked to 4 different people at the bar. There’s something intimate about NYC; you’re in such close proximity to people in public places. This is a wonderful pub, in a formerly Ukrainian
neighborhood, I recommend it highly. Their food is made with ingredients from local farms. They have many beers. NYC is an infinitely complex and deep city. It’s what you make of it and what you take of it.
