Before JoeDoe throws a party for friends and family tonight, how about a first look inside what chef Joseph Dobias is proudly calling his “American restaurant”? Good stuff, no? On the dinner menu, which follows, there are standout dishes (will buffalo brisket be to JoeDoe what monkfish liver was to Prune across the way?), the requisite pork-belly interpretation, and some precious touches like milk and cookies. The brunch menu, which also follows, will debut in the next weeks. After a week of food-only previews, the grand opening will be on Sunday, August 10 — hours are from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. from Sunday through Thursday, with a midnight closing time on Saturdays and Sundays.
