Description: For almost 90 years, long before today's glitzy South Beach gained international acclaim, one emporium. Joe's Stone Crab restaurant, attracted people to South Beach. From its simple beginning as a Mom-and-Pop fish house run by Joe and Jennie Weiss to its status as an interntional gathering spot of celebrities and foodies, Joe's Stone Crab is more than a place to eat. It is a gastronomic and people watching experience covered in history. Chronicled in novels, movies and political memoirs, Joe's has become an American icon.
The third edition of Eat at Joe's, lovingly written by Jo Ann Bass, Joe Weiss' granddaughter and noted editor and historian Howard Kleinberg, brings the remarkable story up to date - the place, the people and the recipes. It is a four generation family saga highlighted by an extended family of loyal employees -- many of whom have worked at Joe's for more than thirty years.
From the time Joe Weiss introduced stone crabs to a skeptical public, to the current mother and son enterprise that includes Joe's Take Away, Ship Away and Joe's of Chicago and Las Vegas, Joe's reputation and loyal, even fanatic patrons remain constant in a fickle age. "Almost nine decades later," according to Kleinberg, "it remains as one of the things to do in South Beach -- if not the thing."
