Cousins Ralph Grimaldi and Vincent Mazzone, the venerable team behind Jimmy’s restaurant, are making a comeback.

Jimmy’s restaurant, a fixture in Brooklyn Heights from the early 1970s until 1990, was known for chef Grimaldi’s classic Italian dishes, prime-aged steaks and pampering service. On July 31, after a 13-year hiatus, the two reopened Jimmy’s on Third Avenue in Bay Ridge.

Grimaldi reprises his role as chef and plans on serving the "Italian Continental" dishes that made the first Jimmy’s so popular. Fans of Grimaldi can look forward to hot antipasti for two with stuffed peppers and mushrooms and, said Grimaldi, "a lot of mussels, shrimp and clams."

Menu updates include the veal capricciosa (meaning whimsical or capricious), a veal chop pounded thin and topped with arugula, plum tomatoes and red onion; and veal with artichokes and wild mushrooms.

Added Grimaldi, "It wouldn’t be Jimmy’s without great steaks."

A moderately priced, international wine list and Grimaldi’s famous tiramisu, cheesecake and a new raspberry and almond tart, helps to make this a successful sequel.

Jimmy’s (7204 Third Ave. at 72nd Street) accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diner’s Club and Discover. Entrees: $12 to $34 for prime aged steak. The restaurant serves dinner seven days a week. For reservations, call (718) 567-8300.
