Guest Blogger: Sister #3-Joey, Polo Park

When I arrived at the restaurant to meet friends for an annual  get together, I was really glad that I got there early as we were facing a 35 minute wait. Joey’s does not except reservations and even though it was only Tuesday “tis the season” for busy restaurants! The good news – Joey’s knows how to show you great hospitality while you wait.  The host staff was friendly and encouraged me to find a seat in the bar for a pre-dinner cocktail.  I was waiting on three friends, all arriving at different times, so I chose instead to wait in the lobby.  The front hall was lined with bar stools for those who need a place to sit. The host staff came by with small glasses of rich red wine for us to sample along with tasting spoonfuls of their tempura style chili chicken to help prime our appetites for dinner.  By the time the last of my party arrived we only had a 5 minute wait before being escorted to a comfortable booth to enjoy our evening. 

 

The service was very good, with a manager popping by a couple of times to check on our experience. Our dinners were good as usual.  I had the Panang Prawn Curry Bowl with stir-fried veggies in a red coconut curry. K had the same with chicken instead of shrimp. I had been warned that the spice was a seven out of ten, but I would say it was more like a four, which was just right for  my taste buds.

S had her favorite lobster ravioli in a lemon tarragon cream sauce and

D enjoyed the butter chicken served with almond basmati rice and warm naan bread and crispy chickpea flour and caraway seed bread (the name of which now escapes me). 

Joey’s is a place this group of girls seems to gravitate to.  The menu has options for those looking for something familiar as well as dishes with Asian, Indian and Latin influences.  The high energy atmosphere makes it feel special, while the reasonable prices make it feel comfortable.

Love-that is all.
