Restaurant Review: Celebrate your Administrative Professional today with seafood or steak at Joe’s!
If there’s one restaurant group in Chicago that knows how to have a good time, it’s Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises. And no one who deserves it more that our Administrative Professionals. Celebrate them today (April 26) and everyday at River North’s Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab.Their special lunch menu ensures that your devoted, loyal staff will know they are appreciated and loved.
According to several sources, the inception of Administrative Professionals Daydates back to World War II, when admin positions were difficult to fill. National Secretaries Day was started in response to show appreciation for administrative staff report, and the day was eventually broadened to include all administrative professionals. The observance was launched in 1952 by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Charles Sawyer. Today, we celebrate these professionals on the Wednesday of the last full week in April of each year.
What makes Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak, and Stone Crab the perfect place to celebrate your Administrative Professional? For one, its upscale menus fit every taste and dietary restriction, whether it be vegetarian or gluten-free. Second, Joe’s professional wait staff ensures that your needs will be taken care of while you dine there.
Start with their Spinach-stuffed mushrooms, or a fresh Shrimp de Jonghe. Those with a more daring palate should try the Ahi Tuna Tartare or Charred Octopus, served with Corona beans, Kalamata olives, and arugula. Or, big spenders should try ‘The Whale,’ a market-price combination of King crab, lobster, jumbo shrimp cocktail, and Littleneck clams.
Do not miss their King Crab Louis Salad, lively with King crab, asparagus, tomato, onion, chopped egg, hearts of palm, avocado, and Louis dressing.
Lunch entrees include a Seared Ahi Tuna Salad with crispy sushi rice, bok choy salad, and Ponzu dressing.Since Joe’s is known as one of the best steakhouses in Chicago, lunch is a perfect time for a 12-ounce NY Strip Steak, or a Joe’s Classic Lunch, an all-inclusive spread of a 6 oz. Petite Filet Mignon Jennie’s mashed potatoes, Joe’s grilled tomato, and a delectable piece of their Key Lime pie.
Google reviewers are mad for Joe’s . “One of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to in Chicago! We started with appetizers of jumbo shrimp and fried calamari which was wow! The other servers brought us hot towels to wipe our hands throughout the night and kept topping our water which was just impeccable service. My Main was grilled fish platter and steamed asparagus and my boyfriend got the fish pasta and lobster Mac n cheese! Superb! Some of the best food I’ve ever had. To our pleasant surprise our waitress brought a free chocolate brownie with a candle for my boyfriend for his birthday and I got a free key lime pie cause it was my first time there! Been to lots of so called top tier restaurants in Chicago but this place takes top spot cause our dinner was fantastic, attentive services, great music not too loud that you couldn’t have a conversation, good ambiance in your own little booth and an alright evening!”
