Word comes this morning from USA Today that the Miami outpost of Brother Jimmy’s, a barbeque chain that started on the Upper East Side and is known for low-brow eats and drinks, has banned Bronxville resident Roger Goodell from its premises.
Why? The eatery is co-owned by New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, who’s suing Goodell for defamation stemming from the Saints’ bounty scandal, in which players allegedly received bonuses for injuring opposing players.
Oh well, we were never impressed with Brother Jimmy’s food, anyway – it’s a far cry from the real Carolina barbeque it purports to serve.
If Roger is craving a Po’Boy, a staple of the Brother Jimmy’s menu, he might try the shrimp version at Underhill’s Crossing right here in town, or their Korean BBQ short rib sliders.
Better yet, Roger could head down to Ripe, the Jamaican joint in Mount Vernon, which serves up the best jerk we’ve had outside of Montego Bay.
Have a bountiful weekend, folks.
