Joia, South Beach

Had a lovely romantic candlelit dinner at this Italian place several years ago waaaay down on Ocean Drive between 1st and 2nd streets. Serene, far enough off the beaten path that it wasn't inundated by tourists, and happily open at 11 pm on a Sunday (the only reason we would have ventured to SoBe for dinner). Seemed a very European crowd.

Great lobster rav, and homemade tiramisu, some of the best I ever had.

Is this place still around, and still great?

  1. Joia is NO MAS! It was a cool place with good food, at least in the started to fall apart there at the end...I heard Danny DeVito will be opening a restaurant there next. Can anyone confirm that rumor?

    1. I read that he was opening a place South of Fifth so that spot makes sense.
