Joe's Stone Crab "Bailout Lunch Special" - Miami Beach

Frodnesor Nov 16, 2008 04:57 AM

Was at Joe's for lunch earlier this week and saw that they had a "Bailout Lunch Special" listed on the menu. Forgive me if I don't get the details exactly right, but it was something to the effect of a cole slaw app, 3 large claws, 1/2 orders of hash browns and creamed spinach sides, key lime pie and a coffee for $30. Just about everything you love about Joe's, for one (relatively) low price.

I also may have misspoke in a post sometime earlier when I said that the greatest bargain in town - the 1/2 fried chicken for $5.95 - had disappeared from the menu. It's still there, as is the $5.95 chopped steak.

    a friend works for the city of Miami Beach tourism, he said that CBS 4 was trying to d a piece on the opening for season and struggled to find an angle to film in front of that didn't show the empty restaurant... Smart move on their part.

        don't get me wrong, I enjoy them and do takeout from time to time. Enjoy their offerings other than the claws too.

        Simply was an observation on possibly a reaction to the state of the economy.

      I know this is not in keeping with the original thread but it seems kind of crazy to me that we are speaking of a "Bailout" lunch "Special" costing $30.00. Guess I am just getting to be an old geezer!
