Mushroom-centric menu?

My husband and I really loved a restaurant in Reading, PA (now closed) called
Joe's. Joe's specialty was mushrooms, and every dish (except dessert) had
some sort of mushroom in it. (the wine list was really nice too) Does anyone
know of a similar place in the area? Joe's has been closed for years, but my
husband still speaks so fondly of it. It would be fun to find a restaurant focusing
on mushroom dishes for our upcoming anniversary. Thanks!

      1. Not precisely what you are looking for but in early August I had dinner at Corduroy and had as my entree seared scallops on little beds of mashed potatoes served with the most amazing mushroom gravy. The gravy made the dish. I know Corduroy's menu changes pretty regularly but that might be someplace to look.

          Euro Bistro in Herndon also has a couple of dishes with prominent mushroom gravies. The mushrooms are sizeable and make the dish. The jaegerschnitzle is one of them. There's another dish that is my regular dish there, but the web site is woefully bad and the lunch specials page isn't coming up (which is where I think the dish is listed).

            This is a signature dish of theirs.

          2. While not mushroom-centric, the Liberty Tavern in Arlington seems to have some interesting selections. Trumpet and meadow mushrooms in dishes, things of that sort.
