Japanese culture and food

The atmosphere and decor was a little bit tattered. Not great, but not terrible enough to ruin the meal. At least There are 2 TVs. The bathroom was pretty gross. There's a bucket right in the middle of the room (to collect water from a leak in the ceiling I suppose - although it wasn't leaking when I was in there- weird).
Also, its a pretty small space with a lot of seats crammed in there. Keep in mind that getting a seat at the sushi bar is alot better than getting a table right in front of the door (especially when its busy and people are lining up inside and outside. Peering over your shoulder eyeing your food).
Service was typical asian and tired. Efficiency is not the name of the game here so you're not be schmoozed by the waitstaff - which is a predominantly good thing since none look awright.

So, I love good food, wine and ambience, and the keg and sushi weren't doing it for me. I wanted something special for my date and freedom from now ex-wife, so my blondie girlfriend and me finally could walk proud in public and we tried out Joey.
The interior is superb, modern and chic, but really comfortable. I loved the set-up of the bar with the ice displayed under it!
We shared a bottle of wine and got some complimentary champagne. The oysters were awesome and we both had the fish that was so right.
The waitress was saucy cute and the tallest girl in miniskirt in the whole room. Blondie hostess was not bad by all means either.
For $68 we had food, wine, candy and great ambience. Enjoyed my freedom celebration.
