Italian-Restaurant

For Everyone Else

New Myers Park restaurant The Jimmy serves Italian cuisine

At The Jimmy, try the Linguini with North Carolina shrimp, celery leaf pesto and Calabrian chili.

The Jimmy, a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant in Charlotte’s Myers Park, is now open for dinner service during its soft opening. The restaurant, created by Noble Food & Pursuits under owner and executive chef Jim Noble, is designed to offer diners pasta or pizza as if they ducked into a cafe along the Mediterranean coastlines of Italy and France.

Don’t flock to The Jimmy all at once though: The soft opening phase will continue during the training of new employees. The restaurant is hiring for all positions, offering a $1,000 bonus to each new team member.

DINNER SERVICE FOR NOW: The Jimmy is open Tuesday through Saturday for dinner beginning at 5 p.m. It plans to add breakfast and lunch services later, with coffee and light morning fare by nearby Copain Gatherings, another Noble spot.

WINE: And what’s pasta without some wine to coat your palate? The Jimmy has a temperature-controlled wine cellar, housing bottles from France, Italy, Spain and the U.S. The wine was hand-selected by both Jim Noble and Ernie Leonelli, the restaurant group’s wine curator. If you’re looking for something a bit more casual, it offers 18 craft beers on tap at the bar — with most of them being locally brewed.

Menu features:

  • Piatti Piccolo (small plates)

  • Contorni (sides for the table)

  • Secondi (proteins)

  • Insalata

  • Pasta

    • Orecchiette with lamb ragu and rapini

    • Linguini with North Carolina shrimp, celery leaf pesto and Calabrian chili

  • Pizza

    • Margherita

    • Funghi aka “Jimmy’s Pie,” with Urban Gourmet Farms roasted mushrooms, taleggio, and balsamic reduction

    • Salsiccia with house made fennel sausage, escarole, red onion and ricotta

  • Whole grilled fish with lemon and herb

  • Grilled Joyce Farms Sirloin for two
