Tasting Menu – Not Your Average Joe’s – Spring 2013 – review

May 22, 2013

One of the great benefits of being a travel and food writer is that when new seasons roll around, I get to visit restaurants to sample their new menu offerings. That was the case last night when the fine folks at Not Your Average Joe’s invited me and a guest to try out some new food.

Thanks right off the top to the Watertown store’s chef Mark Hallett and general manager Ralph Vitiello. They made a fun evening more special with a bunch of tasty food and good conversation. I was also tickled (and thankful) that they let me taste one of their new cocktails, too.

What was on my plate? Here’s a photo of the entire menu.

Of the two new drinks, I only tried the Pisco Sour. And from the food menu, we actually had every item and three  dessert items that weren’t listed.

So, here are the photos of all the food with my captions… I’d love to hear your questions or comments. NYAJoe’s is one of my favorites already, but it’s night like this one that drives home how much they really understand their core customer – and the expertise they use in preparing their cuisine.

I had a great evening last night. They have lots of locations and if you do social, you can follow NYAJoe’s on Twitter via this link. You can follow me on Twitter or FB or leave a note in the comments right here on my site. Enjoy!
