THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Brother Jimmy's West Restaurant Review

: Brother Jimmy's is the place if you feel like mingling with hungry and gregarious young people while digging into respectable spare ribs. You're in for robust portions of belt-bending Southern food, and the ribs are served either wet or dry. The menu is packed with the usual barbecue treats, as well as a nice selection of salads. But the lively party atmosphere is what keeps the patrons coming back. Also located at 1644 Third Ave., 212-426-2020; 428 Amsterdam Ave., 212-501-7515; and 416 8th Ave., 212-967-7603.
