Joey's in Wynwood

I walked by the other night and it looked inviting. Has anyone tried it yet?

  1. I went on Saturday and it was some of the best food I have eaten in Miami. It was packed, the service was friendly and the prices were great. The menu has really different choices and everything we had tasted so fresh and good. We all loved it. the restaurant is super cool and feels very urban but comfortable. Free valet parking was nice.

    1. I agree - very good food, stylish setting and very cool neighborhood.

      1. well.. that's two posts that have responded to a more than month old post and described the food as "good" without any other details (uhmm like the type of food or the dishes they sampled) and who have no other posts on the boards. :

        so, please, if you will (and even if you were sent here to praise the place) , take the time to give us some details? Thanks!

            ah. Italian.

            oh well.

            my italian choice is well fixed (Rosinella) - I have celiac disease and can't ingest gluten (found in wheat) and Rosinella is the only place I trust to accommodate that (I bring my own gluten free pasta that they prepare separately). I'm waiting for Fusion Pizza to open in Miami-Dade so I actually have a pizza place.

              If you're referring to Pizza Fusion, it's already opened in North Miami Beach. The Herald even reviewed it.

                Thanks!.. I guess I'll stop waiting for them to let me know when it's open (I thought I was on an email list.. guess I was wrong). they have one in Fort Lauderdale... very good pizza with a profusion of fresh ingredients.

                1. re: karmalaw

                  I'm a big fan of the space but think the food could use just a bit of tweaking. I tend to find the fish dishes to be waaaay oversalted (I kept the bus boy on his toes with constant water refills) and the pizza just seems mediocre to me. The dolce was just too sweet and the margarita was a bit limp. That said, the papparadelle in bolognese was sublime.
