Joseph Fryre’s background includes the Garden of the God’s cCub and the Penrose Room at The Broadmoor. It was there that he became one of only 5 men who learned the secrets to creating the most succulent and delicious pepper steak known to man. He has leveraged his expertise in nouveau cuisine to create Joseph’s Fine Dining.
Joseph’s off 8th street is in a pretty nondescript strip center, but is a nice stand alone building with a warm and comfortable ambiance. Joseph is a delight and his love for food and for welcoming guests come through with all of the staff.
Even the fresh baked bread is hot and moist, fresh out of the oven and served with whipped butter. It’s the kind of bread that you have to force yourself to stop eating or you will have not room left.
We began our culinary journey with the Cape Cod Crab Cakes. These are cakes worthy of the alliteration. Stuffed full of sweet crab meat and a host of other ingredients including cream cheese and beurre blanc sauce, they taste as good as they look.
The “Famous Pepper Steak Flambé” earns the right to be famous. We thrilled to watch Joseph at work as he prepared this dish table-side for us. This classic dish offers a center cut filet tenderloin pan roasted in butter and marinated with a Mango Chutney, Cracked Black Peppercorns, a Demiglaze, and flambéed with French brandy.
The beef was succulent and the sauce just perfection. We paired it with the housemade garlic mashed potatoes and a wonderful pesto risotto, both were wonderful.
If you are in the mood to be spoiled with a fine culinary journey, take a trip to Joseph’s Fine dining. You will be glad you did.
