750 15th Street, NW at H Street
The eagerly anticipated Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab located at the corner of 15th and H Street, NW is nearly here. They’ll be opening Friday the 31st. I had the opportunity to get an early look and early taste – and it’s well worth the wait.
You can now see the DC dinner menu here:
In addition to the Stone Crab for which they are famous, there are tons of other options – not just fancy stuff either – there is also a delicious fried chicken and a good looking cheeseburger (photos after the jump.)
You can read about the history of Joe’s here.
And the restoration of the space is incredible, thankfully they kept all the great details. Basically the space is split up a few ways. First when you enter the main hall you’ll see a large bar (where the full menu is also served) and lots of booths. Off the bar is a seperate dining area with more table and booth seating plus a more intimate bar. Upstairs is dominated by private dining rooms. Have a look.
Lots more photos after the jump.
Unfortunately I ate the Stone Crab claws before taking a photo :) It was interesting to learn that unlike blue crabs, stone crabs you only eat the claws (the crabs actually are not killed, claws are removed and put back in the water). You dip them in their secret mustard sauce – so so good.
