Brother Jimmy's near Penn Station?
I saw some old Brother Jimmy's postings but they seem to be from quite a few years back. Ok, I live near Penn and I don't love the mid range food options near me. I noticed Brother Jimmy's and I was wondering if it's worth it. I don't need a great restaurant but a decent pulled pork sandwich would be a great addition to our hood. Enlighten me and sorry if I'm missing more recent posts. I really did a search!
it's the same old bro jimmy's like all the rest. food's fine, nothing amazing. i was there last week, had pulled chicken sandwich which was large and satisfying although a bit over sauced. it's good to have another option in that hood, for pre-gaming before MSG events, etc.
also, there's a whole upsatairs dining room there, which is all open w/windows on 2 sides, so it's nice and bright during the day
As Brother Jimmy's, it's very new. I'm not even sure if that one's open yet. I work in this hood, so I walk by it occasionally... haven't done so in about a week though.
Anyway, the other one that I've been to is the UES location. It's okay. I don't want to start the age-old RUB/BlueSmoke/Hill-Country argument... it's nowhere near as good as those. But as long as you keep your expectations in check, it should be just fine for you.
Brother Jimmy's on UES actually has pretty good ribs, some of the best I have had in NYC (although that's not saying much). Better than RUB and Blue Smoke. It can be pretty loud and crowded in the restaurant though. I also generally like Daisy May's, Dinosaur, and Virgil's (for lamb, not ribs).
