I went to Jimmy’s Food Store for lunch. Uncle John’s from Coal Vine’s has been telling me about this place for years. Then our Italian jeweler Pete told my husband that he picks up their provolone cheese and takes it with him to NY every time he visits his family. He said they get it in straight from Italy. So of course I had to finally make a visit.
I ordered a turkey sub (I know, not very italian) and added provolone and avocado. It was delicious and under $5!
My husband tells the story that he use to get a black and white everyday when he worked in NYC. So I picked him up a cookie for a treat.
Half the store seemed to be wine.
…and I was pleasantly surprised to see Henry’s homemade ice cream!
I would say that Jimmy’s is all that it’s cracked up to be.
