Jimmy’s Food Store

This neighborhood icon opened in 1966. It’s more of a shop than a restaurant, but it gets the nod here because the food is just so damn good. Stroll the narrow aisles and pick up a few cans of whole Italian tomatoes and some vino for tonight’s dinner, or leave it all up to the professionals with a bag of housemade pasta and sauce. The freezers are stocked with pizzas and lasagnas, and the sandwich counter makes some of the best overstuffed subs in town. If you’re new here, get an Italian Stallion, stacked with—get this—mortadella, capicola, soppressata, pepperoni, provolone, porchetta, prosciutto, coppa, and mozzarella. Take a seat at one of the small tables in the back room or post up outside the front door and dive into all that meat.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
