Joe’s Restaurant (Abbot Kinney)

By in 15: Venice

An almost forgotten entry, because I blogged about Joe’s too much (1, 2, 3), I can’t get enough of their Prix Fixe business 3 courses lunch set. I reserved a table of 2 to meet with my friend. Turns out a group of 10 co-workers followed her when she tried to sneak out (I know many of them too). ^^;;;
My friend went for their regular menu: Porcini Crusted Salmon, Pancetta Gnocchi, Mushrooms Puree, Yellow Wax Bean. I’m no fan of Gnocchi but that is so good~
DSC01658.jpgI still got the set (same 1st course as before so I won’t include the photo again). My entree was Scallop , also has the delicious Mushroom Puree. Despite there were only 4 small pieces of scallops, I was full~

The Lemon Tart is part of my Prix Fixe Menu, it was too sour! My friend got the Chocolate Mousse, much better!

To continue: the waitress asked if the two of us want to sit with the group ^^;; but we rather hide in our little corner. Surprisingly, the restaurant has a big enough table to accommodate the group so they were sat too.

    While I was reading your entry, I kept thinking gosh did those 10 extra people got seats?! Amazing that they actually did…^^;;
    Why did you choose the same appetizer?

    That appertizer: the sweet corn…was too good, can’t resist getting it again. ^^;;

    Sometimes you don’t feel like mingle with a huge group, I was expecting a more intimate lunch with girly talk..plus…it’d take forever to wait for everyone to finish in a huge group in a multi-courses lunch! ^^;;;
