We’re excited to debut our new kitchen collaboration with Chef King Phojanakong of Kuma Inn and Umi Nom: Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43! The restaurant will serve sophisticated yet approachable Thai and Filipino street food; Chef King is currently serving
an abbreviated menu, and the concept will launch officially for dinner next Tuesday, June 16th the full menu 7-days-a-week at Jimmy’s No. 43!
Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43 will be open for business seven nights a week, with a delicious and indulgent menu that includes:
- Pork Belly Adobo Tacos with Thai Chili Lime Sauce
- Adobo Chicken Wings (slow braised then fried to order; the meat melts off the bone)
- Halo Halo Fries with Dried Bonito Flakes
- A special order (for group dinners of 8 or more) “Lechon” whole roast pig (e-mail in advance to reserve!) – we’ll have a la carte ($25/pp) Lechon pig this Father’s Day (more info here)
The kitchen will have a limited bar menu on weekends after midnight.
While Jimmy’s No. 43 known as a go-to spot for craft beer and cider, we also now have full liquor license and a great new selection of local whiskey, gin and bourbon cocktails, which pair beautifully with Chef King’s Thai and Filipino dishes. Must haves include the Tequila Paloma, Lemongrass Gin & Tonic, and Vodka Calamansi.
Jimmy and Chef King met more than a decade ago as volunteers at Days of Tastes and have worked together on Pig Island, New York’s favorite porcine festival. On the inspiration behind launching a permanent home for Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43, King puts it succinctly: “Jimmy is a big fan of my food, and I’m a big fan of his bar.”
We’re the same Jimmy’s No. 43 with a great new kitchen and menu! We survived the East
Village gas explosion, have reopened, and will have a better menu than ever! Come this week for the roll out, and next week for the full menu (here).
