While some restaurants are possibly trying to sugarcoat recession specials by passing them off as anniversary dinners, one spot isn’t beating around the bush. JoeDoe has always been a winning proposition given its hearty portions, but now chef Joe Dobias tells us he has introduced a three-course, $35 “Madoff menu.” You’ll notice there’s a Scottish egg on it, just like at Wilfie & Nell. Are these things the new devils on horseback?

Scottish Egg (mustard sauce, sausage)
Celeriac Soup (house-cured pork jowl, almonds)
