The Jimmy restaurant in New Myers Park serves Italian cuisine

At 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 pre-opening. The restaurant, created by Noble Food & Pursuits under the direction of owner and executive chef Jim Noble, is designed to offer diners pasta or pizza as if they were bathing in a café along the Mediterranean coasts of Italy and from France.

Don’t rush to Jimmy just yet: 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 from 5 p.m. He plans to add breakfast and lunch services later, with coffee and light morning fare from nearby Buddy Gatherings, another Noble spot.

WINE: And what would pasta be without a little wine to coat your palate? The Jimmy has a temperature-controlled wine cellar, containing bottles from France, Italy, Spain, and the United States. The wine was hand-selected by Jim Noble and Ernie Leonelli, the restaurant group’s wine curator. If you’re looking for something a little more laid back, it has 18 craft beers on tap at the bar, most of them locally brewed.
