Joe’s American Bar & Grill has relocated from its digs on Newbury and Dartmouth to the old TGI Friday’s space a block away. Though most of the menu, below, remains the same, some new items have been added, including a cubano sandwich, and (wait for it) lobster macaroni and cheese. The really exciting thing here is the retractable roof over the patio, which automatically closes at the first sign of rain.
