Sad news in Brookline: Jimmy's Bar & Oven at 1653 Beacon St. will close on or around February 23, says an employee of the restaurant. More details to come. Currently, it's home to a very fine chicken parmesan pizza and a nice beer selection. It opened in 2011; before that, it was the B&D Deli.
Update: Owner James Hamelburg tells me that he'll reopen Jimmy's in Downtown Boston in the coming months, location TBD. He also says that the current Jimmy's will stay open a bit longer, into March, and that a new restaurant isn't taking its place (sorry, friends).
