Greek Lunch

Jimmy's Restaurant
Had a great lunch at Jimmy’s, the Greek Restaurant at The Landing Resort. The dishes are a fantastic modern take on classic Greek food by British celebrity chef Maria Elia who oversees Jimmy’s Restaurant, serving wood-fired Greek seafood and locally sourced California cuisine. 

Wood Grilled Halloumi Cheese
Chef Maria is known for her thoroughly modern take on the traditional dishes from her Greek heritage, an approach that served as the basis for her recently published third book, Smashing Plates: Greek Flavors Redefined.

Wood Grilled Octopus with Peas
Jimmy’s is an elegant restaurant. It has a gorgeous decor and chic modern appearance along with original artwork. Seated in a lake view table, We had a 5 for $45 menu, each dish elegantly presented and delicious. The waitress was also terrific, knowledgeable and very attentive.

Kalamata Toast
Tomato, Feta and Almond Baclava
The idea displayed by the 5 for $45 concept of sharing small plates was very good set of dishes. We really enjoyed each dish and were astounded by the complexity of the foods. Each one was good.

Zucchini Keftedes
Overall, Jimmy’s was an outstanding dining experience and we look forward to our next visit, hopefully soon.

Highly recommended!
