South county pick: JIMMY’S BISTRO

The daily fish special that’s featured on Chef James Mills’ menu at this neighborhood gem of a bistro is fresh caught and expertly prepared. Ditto for just about everything that steams out of his kitchen.

In addition to his stellar fish dishes, Mills turns out one comfort dish after another, from schnitzel to ravioli to étouffé to chicken fried chicken.

For the pairing, he offers a well-curated selection of excellent wines.

The place is worth the detour from the Atlantic Avenue bustle. Slip into this bistro, and expect good grub and good service.
