Wine Dinner at Jimmy’s Food Store

Recently we attended a Wine Dinner at Jimmy’s Food Store in Dallas.  Jimmy’s is an Italian Food Store in Dallas, TX operated by the DiCarlo Family for 50 years. Specializing in Italian Imports of food and wine. They also have an amazing meat market and deli.

I contacted Paul, the owner/manager, and asked if there was a problem preparing our food Gluten-free. Without hesitation he said, “absolutely not.”

Chef Joanne Bondy of Stocks and Bondy prepared the dinner and it did not disappoint.  Dinner menu below.

Chilled Tuna Salad {Ghiotta Style} – Tuna, white anchovies, capers, heirloom grape tomatoes, shaved Parmesan cheese lightly dressed with olive oil and lemon. 

Potato Gnocchi with Lobster Sauce – Paul, the owner manager tried both the fresh Gnocchi that was not Gluten-free and our Gluten-free Gnocchi and remarked that he preferred our Gnocchi (found in the freezer section at Jimmy’s)
