It's a little secret that Jimmy'z Kitchen will deliver from its Wynwood location to your high rise in Brickell. The only caveat is that it can take a while. A long while.
But no more.

Chef and owner Jimmy Carey popped an anemic post on social media earlier this week, announcing a Brickell location sometime in the future. A trawl of Florida corporation files reveals Carey filed the paperwork for the new location on October 1.
The newest Jimmy'z, which should be at 60 SW 10th St. across from Mary Brickell Village, will join three other locations that include Pinecrest, South Beach, and, of course, Wynwood.
If you're unfamiliar with Jimmy'z here's a quick run through of the menu: The place is beloved for its mofongo, mashed unripe plantains with crunchy bits of pork skin interspersed throughout. Get it with pork ($17) or shrimp in a tomato creole sauce ($16.99). On the sandwich front La Tripleta ($8.25) is the way to go. There's roast pork, ham and bacon with caramelized onions on a Cuban roll.
Keeping on trend Jimmy'z has launched a trio of salads built on kale -- the roughest of roughage -- but the jerk chicken salad ($10.99) with spicy grilled breast meat, avocado, mango, toasted almonds, and a sherry vinaigrette is a reliable standby.
Put Jimmy'z right up there next to Perricone's, which offers two deli sandwiches and two sodas for $11 on Tuesdays, as your neighborhood spot.
