We’re not sure why Main Street’s eternally busy Slickity Jim’s Chat and Chew decided to open its homonymously named second location (It’s French! It’s too clever!) on the unremarkable corner of Hemlock and 7th, but the cozy, eclectic space—decked out with vintage chandeliers and charmingly tacky boat paintings—easily captures the original’s appeal and draws a steady stream of locals off the Granville-Broadway corridor. Join them to brunch hard with cornflake-crusted honey butter French toast or a cast-iron pan piled with tender braised ribs, fresh chimichurri and sunny-side-up eggs.
