Taking a friend tonight for a birthday. I had trout there the last time, which was incredibly good. Thanks.

    I love the venison.

      I second this recommendation. Too often, venison is gamy. It is definitely not that at Josie.

      Truffle french fries.
      Sepia and merguez sausage starter.
      Whatever dessert sounds good to you - they're all good.

        Agree about the fries; they're excellent. Also, was there on Saturday and they had a Kurobuta pork chop on special, which was phenomenal. I generally also like the tangine short ribs, and the warm vegetable salad appetizer. For dessert, the sticky pumpkin cake, and the chocolate bread pudding (which is really closer to a souffle) are my favorites.

          Yes, the tagine of short ribs with couscous/veggies are phenomenal and almost too rich... For dessert, the trio of pot de creme (dark, white, and milk chocolate when we dined there) were well received...

            Second the short ribs - it's definitely phenomenal.

            The chocolate bread pudding (in my personal last meal catagory) without a doubt.

            The only thing I've ever really liked at Josie was they had a winter or spring vegetable salad that was the prettiest salad I've ever seen, it had vegetables in all the different colors of the rainbow. Other than that I think Josie is one of the most overrated joints in town.

              Agreed on the truffle french fries - can't say much about anything else (I've only gone there on their Wednesday Farmer's Market prix-fixe, which changes every week.)
