It's ironic that this review is about the penultimate night at Joe's. Joe Miller, a chef who introduced the kind of imaginative cooking using fresh ingredients other chefs have been copying for 24 years, has closed Joe's. First, dinner was a procession of flavors and cooking that my Dad, also a cook, would have pronounced "soigne" which means subtle and delicious. I had cauliflower bisque with rock shrimp, grilled tuna on rosti with foie gras and a porterhouse with the sweetest small onions and crispy artichokes, and mashed potatoes. I am still thinking about the dessert flyte, passionfruit meringue, moscarpone cheesecake and the coup de gras a chocolate ganache square with crunchified walnuts. Joe's has been a bastion of cuisine that grows in variety and technical accomplishment. I will never forget seeing Joe ladle liquid in a china cap that night, this is a hands-on restaurant with a chef who always did the work. Joe never dialed in his cooking, he did it with his crew. I could wish for you all who love accomplished cooking to "Eat At Joe's" but no, Venice is in a current spiral downhill where best beloved, POPULAR, well-patronized local restaurants are being leveled by greed of speculators. I could wish for you to know just how your appreciation of tastes and flavors could be boosted by Joe's ever changing, season-oriented (and well seasoned) menu. I could wish for you to have a happy brunch with breads that you enjoy eating for flavor, savory and sweet selections of egg and pancakes. I could wish for you to know what it's like when you have a reservation and remember during the days before "We're going to Joe's this week *_*" Joe's, high quality ingredients and technique for good value. Joe's, combinations of greens and mushrooms, scallops and polenta, Christmas Eve dinners that celebrated Winter cooking, Joe's a place where the cooks and crew went out and brought your dog treats and water while you were inside for brunch, Come back Joe, please!
