A veritable palace of surf & turf at its most decadent and refined, Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab takes every ingredient in its title with utter seriousness and diligence. That means going to great lengths to source only the finest—like its namesake stone crab, plucked one claw at a time from the Gulf of Mexico before being boiled, chilled, and dunked in aioli. And that’s just the tip of the seafaring iceberg here, where the laundry list-style menu runs the gamut from buttery crab bisque and charred octopus to lobster pasta and salmon au poivre.
