Jimmy Carey was born in New York City’s Greenwich Village to American-Irish and Cuban parents. After only a short while living there, he and his family moved to Puerto Rico where he was exposed to a variety of culinary influences from Spanish to Cuban. When it was time to attend university, Carey made a move to Miami in the late 80’s to attend Johnson and Wales and has been in the area ever since.
With 37 years of experience in the restaurant industry, including all phases of operations, Jimmy is adept at preparing imaginative dishes with Mediterranean, Italian, French, Spanish and Nuevo Latino influences. He has also built up expertise opening multiple restaurant concepts specifically for the Miami and Atlanta market. Fulfilling a lifelong dream of having his own establishment, Carey opened the first Jimmy’z Kitchen in 2007 in Miami’s South Beach, subsequently opening three additional locations. Carey is a pioneer in Miami of the chef-inspired fast casual concept, and renowned for his healthy and delicious fare.
Since 2013 he has also participated consecutively in the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival, an annual five-day event located in Miami Beach. Carey lovingly created a diverse menu of healthy choices. Known for savory entrees, such as the traditional Puerto Rican mofongo, diners can find something for every palate. The varied menu was complimented by a distinctive wine and craft beer selection. Jimmy'z Kitchen has since been recognized by Zagat, chosen by Yelp as one of the best reviewed restaurants in Miami, and named as one of the 38 “Must-Visit Restaurants” by Eater Miami.
Carey is currently a Professional Commercial Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Commercial specializing in Restaurant and Tenant representation in the Atlanta market.
