Steak and chicken at Joey Restaurant

Joey Restaurant menu

On Friday night the fiancée and I decided to try out the new Joey Restaurant near Yonge & Dundas. I was fortunate enough to have won a gift card when they were promoting the July 4 opening on Twitter, so I wanted to make good use of it.

When we got there around 5:30pm, it was already busy, so we had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. In the meantime, we were offered a free sample of wine, which we gladly tried. Once we were taken to our somewhat dark, but nice booth we had a look at the menu. Joey Restaurant

After much deliberating I decided to go with the 9oz CAB Top Sirloin which came with mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes wrapped in some flaky pastry. I had no complaints about the food. The steak was made just as I’d wanted it (medium-rare) and while I was worried the mashed potatoes would be bland, the wrapped pastry with sour cream and chives (I believe) on top, added that extra flavour.Joey Restaurant

For her meal, the fiancée went with the Bombay Butter Chicken which was served with toasted almond basmati rice, grilled naan bread and lentil papadum. She’s a fan of butter chicken in general, and she seemed to enjoy this one quite a bit. She doesn’t always finish her plates when we go out, but she managed to eat it all.

We were both tempted to get dessert, but we were full enough from the meal, which is usually the case (see eyes bigger than stomach syndrome).

Overall we had a great experience at Joey, though if you want an entree it’s a bit on the mid-to-high price range for me (I’m cheap, sue me). It has great atmosphere and is a good middle-ground option for groups having trouble deciding where to eat.

If you’ve been, what’s your favourite dish at Joey?

      It had a great atmosphere and is much better than Jack’s/Milestones nearby that’s for sure.
