House of Madame JO-JO's

  • m

I was reading the postings and came across someone's recommendation for House of Madame JO-JO's in Long Beach. The recommendation was to go Saturday nites when the owner hands out boa hats and gloves for his patrons to wear.

This sounds fun...has anyone else been there that can offer more insight...atmosphere sounds great, but how is the food???

  1. This is right around the corner from me in my new 'hood, and a recent visit with friends revealed nothing extraordinary, basic Italian/Continental preparations with adequate portions. My Cajun Chicken Chowder was one memorable high point, but the veal ravioli were passable. The desserts seemed especially pedestrian, and the wine list wasn't notable in any way. I'm not saying it was bad, I just couldn't recommend it solely for the novelty of getting to wear a hat and boa - which, for me, is a total accessorizing faux-pas. ;^)
