pop-we Dinner Club Reviews Jimi D's Food and Spirits

Jimi D's Chicken Picatta.
Do you know Jimmy? No, Jimi D’s. This was my foodie pick for the month. Located at 6303 Center St. in Omaha, NE. At Jimi D’s Food and Spirits they strive to use the freshest ingredients and make dishes from scratch. They also have gluten free pasta upon request.

How to describe Jimi D’s? The answer: it's like an upscale sports bar. At the front you have a large bar with your typical sports bar feel; than in the back it has more of a restaurant feel, with the exception of the large televisions mounted on the walls. There are also paintings/pictures adorning the walls. Our population-we™ (pop-we) Dinner Club's table of 12 had one of these large televisions above it, which was fine by me as the Creighton Blue Jays basketball game was on. The menu definitely was not your ordinary sports bar menu. I doubt many sports bars have Pesto Salmon, Prosciutto Wrapped Cod or Shrimp Fra Diavolo, to name a couple entrees.

Tonight I decided on the Chicken Picatta, which is sautéed in a lemon caper butter sauce on a bed of linguini noodles. I enjoyed the dish. The noodles were perfectly cooked as well as the sauce was not too overpowering. Since we made it for happy hour (they have happy hour every day of the week) we also ordered the calamari. I have had a lot of calamari and Jimi D’s puts a little twist on it by using a beer batter. This was different, but it really worked with the red pepper and lemon aioli sauce. I would recommend, especially; for the happy hour price--you cannot go wrong.
