where's Jimmy Mack?

  • c

Does anyone know the whereabouts of Jimmy Mack, the southern/soul chef (great gumbo) who had a place on Broadway in Somerville and previously cooked at various places around Boston??

  1. Yes. Although I haven't been there yet, it was posted earlier that he has a place on Western Ave. in Cambridge called the Avenue Cafe. Word has it that he has mellowed.

      Yes, indeed. Jimmy Mack aka Butch Harris aka Butchie is open for business as The Avenue Cafe on Western Avenue in Cambridge, a couple of blocks before Memorial Drive.
      His food is better than ever and he HAS mellowed. He'll be happy to see you. Don't forget the pineapple upside down cake for dessert.
