The lease is signed, and now we want details. Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab has shared some info on what to expect from their upcoming D.C. location.
The restaurant will open sometime this fall, under the direction of executive chef Chris Morvis. It's an outpost of the original Miami Beach restaurant, which has built up a reputation for bone-in steaks, stone crab claws and other seafood options. The crab claws are flown in from Florida and served with mustard sauce.
The restaurant is also into tableside preparations (much like the recently opened The Grill Room in Georgetown), so expect such dishes as Dover sole and Alaskan King grab legs to be served accordingly. There are other fish dishes, like scallops and halibut, as well as some non-fish items like fried chicken and hash browns. Also, Key Lime pie.
The space will feature a four-sided bar with high top tables and booths, hanging chandeliers and marble columns. Dark wood and leather are among the accents, so the decor sounds pretty masculine. The restaurant will seat a whopping 465 people, with several options for private dining.
