Pick-up will be at the concrete ramp in front of the restaurant starting at 1:00 pm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. If you’re unable to drive, Simpatico will deliver.

“On Monday 3/23, Tuesday 3/24 and Wednesday 3/25, Simpatico is offering curbside pickup of luncheon portions to Jamestown residents who are seniors, immunity-compromised or have special needs at NO CHARGE throughout the self-quarantine period (or as long as they let us !)

2. Atlantic SALMON (prepared medium) with jasmine rice + sesame sautéed vegetables; glaze will be served on the side. *Gluten-free option without the glaze.

3. BOLOGNESE! Classic, rich preparation of rigatoni simmered with ground beef, veal, hot + sweet sausage, cream, red wine + seasonings.
