Cafe Josie quick-lunch

It’s true; Cafe Josie shines at lunch, just as it does at dinner. Meny of the menu items are the same, although at lunch the star of the plate seems to come in a half-portion at a commensurately reduced price. On this my second visit, I just had to order the pepita redfish again. Also brought to our table and treated as an entree, and not the starter it’s listed as, was a plate of lobster cakes. The bargain treat of the day was a coconut shrimp bisque, a very generous serving of soup, with a rich, complex flavor and bounteous shrimp, for an unbelievable four dollars. Countless diners ordered the redfish tacos in handmade flour tacos. The iced tea comes in a tall glass tumbler and is unobtrusively refilled without any need to ask. Surprisingly, the professional and attentive service here did ensure that this was in fact a quick-lunch occasion, even though a Friday. At lunch, the light is natural, though tamed by subtly tinted glass. The acoustics are on the noisy side, but this makes the venue a good place for babies and toddlers, whose vocalizing is lost in the ambient bustle. If the delicious meal came piping hot to the table so expeditiously on a Friday at the beginning of the month, when people still feel flush, a Cafe Josie quick-lunch must indeed be possible on almost any day of the week.
