BROOKLINE (CBS) – This week, Phatom Gourmet goes to Jimmy’s Bar and Oven on Beacon Street in Brookline.
Jim Hamelburg is a lifelong Brookline resident, and he felt the time was right to bring a touch of Manhattan to Washington Square, with a minimalist decor, garage door windows, and simple, straight-forward Italian cuisine.
There are generous portions, everything is prepared with quality ingredients. And prices are real sharp too.
Pizzas are what put Jimmy’s on the map.
They’re incredibly light and crispy, topped with options like fresh mozzarella and basil, golden slices on chicken parmesan, or artichokes, tomatoes, and mushrooms.
You can also find plump sautéed mussels, crunchy deep-fried pickles, and real homestyle spaghetti and meatballs.
For more food and fun, watch the Phantom Gourmet every Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. on myTV 38.
