Jimmy's Restaurant

Entrance to Jimmy's
Had a wonderful dining experience at Jimmy’s while we stayed at The Landing in South Lake Tahoe.  It was not inexpensive compared  to other upscale restaurants in south Lake Tahoe, but the Greek style food was much more interesting.

Jimmy's Bar
What makes the dishes special its that they 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. 

We had an interesting discussion with the talented Chef de Cuisine, Mylan Schmidt who, beyond being a friendly and modern chef, was very informed and knowledgable about contemporary dining and the local sourcing which made Jimmy’s so good. 

Savory Baclava
We started our meal with  the delicious Savory tomato, feta, almond baclava which we had for lunch earlier and had to have again for dinner. It’s so good.

Heirloom Tomato Salad with Feta
The next dish was a fresh heirloom tomato salad with feta cheese and basil.

Grilled Black bass
The main dish was a whole grilled fresh black bass with roasted potatoes and capers that was fantastic. Along with that was a side dish of white polenta and lemon olive oil.

White Polenta
Jimmy’s is one of the best dining experiences we've had at Lake Tahoe. We look forward to returning.

Highly recommended!
