Brother Jimmy’s BBQ in White Plains: New on the Dining Scene


By Amy Sowder
The “Put some South in yo’ mouth” slogan shows you the casual, raucous kind of atmosphere to expect at a small barbecue chain that opened a location in White Plains this fall.
Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, which opened Sept. 22, replaces the more upscale Butterfield 8 on Mamaroneck Avenue. Expect an interior filled with wood, Jack Daniels whiskey barrels, glass bottles, license plates, neon signs and Southern antiques.
There are four Brother Jimmy’s locations in Manhattan, one in the Yankee Stadium, one in New Jersey and three in South Florida.
This might be a nightlife spot for younger patrons — they’re seeking DJs and have a square-shaped bar with seating all around it. Order the Frickles (fried pickles with horseradish sauce), collard greens, pulled pork and slaw, ays Josh Lebowitz, president of the restaurant’s Dining Entertainment Group.
“I think we’re probably one of the first ones up north to fry pickles,” Lebowitz says. “We put it on the menu 10 years ago. Now, everyone’s doing it.”
The restaurant also sells T-shirts and condiments such as Chipotle BBQ Sauce and Blazin’ Jalapeno Stuffed Olives.
Find this Westchester joint at 147 Mamaroneck Ave., White Plains. Call 914-358-4881 or visit for more information.
