Joey D’s: AJC “from the menu of…”

From the Menu Of… Joey D’s, New Orleans Spicy Shrimp

AJC, March 4, 2021
By C.W. Cameron

The sauce that comes with the New Orleans barbecue shrimp appetizer at Joey D’s Oak Room is absolutely divine. It includes a mixture of spices with a smoky taste to it. I would love to have the recipe for that dipping sauce! It would pair well with other fish recipes as well. — Viviana Fernandez, Sandy Springs

This spicy shrimp appetizer has been on the menu at Joey D’s Oak Room since the restaurant opened more than 30 years ago. It’s a classic New Orleans preparation that is messy to eat but worth the mess. This is the first time the restaurant has been willing to share this recipe, so we’re glad to be able to feature it.

Entrepreneurial Hospitality program named in honor of Greenbaum family

Tulane University, Freeman News

October 2020

After graduating from Tulane University, Jerry Greenbaum (BBA ’62) grew the modest liquor store founded by his father into a family of successful hospitality businesses including a chain of beverage alcohol superstores and more than a dozen upscale casual restaurants across the Southeast.

Along the way, Greenbaum and his wife, the former Barbara Axelrod (NC ’63), also became two of Tulane’s most dedicated supporters. A past chair of the Freeman Business School Council, Greenbaum joined the Board of Tulane in 2011 and provided leadership and funding for major projects including the Goldring/Woldenberg Business Complex, the Barbara Greenbaum Residence Hall, Yulman Stadium and the Freeman School’s new online graduate program in Entrepreneurial Hospitality.

On Friday, Oct. 16, Tulane paid tribute to the Greenbaums’ lifetime of support by naming the new program in their honor. The Greenbaum Family Program in Entrepreneurial Hospitality will apply the joint lenses of entrepreneurship and hospitality to focus on the business principles needed to deliver an exceptional customer experience. The centerpiece of the program is the Entrepreneurial Hospitality specialization within the Master of Management program, which will welcome its first student cohort in January 2021 as the Freeman School’s first online graduate degree program.

“The creation of this program couldn’t come at a better time, at a better place and couldn’t have a better name — the Greenbaum Family Program in Entrepreneurial Hospitality,” said Tulane President Mike Fitts during a virtual meeting of the Business School Council. “New Orleans is a center of hospitality, Tulane is a center of entrepreneurship and the Greenbaums are highly successful entrepreneurs and models of hospitality.”

“Jerry Greenbaum was the inspiration for this program,” added Freeman School Dean Ira Solomon. “He provided the original key insights on the intersection of hospitality and entrepreneurship that drove the creation of this program. Quite simply, it could not have existed without Jerry and Barbara’s advice and counsel.”

You can enjoy an amazing steak at New York Prime, but we are betting there are many who go just to enjoy the crab cakes. Chef Robert Kinsella says, “The preparation and minimal ingredients are meant to showcase the crab. Start with quality crab meat and the final product will be a winner.”

By Henri Hollis

Dunwoody spot’s shrimp are messy, but worth it

The menu at Joey D’s describes the New Orleans spicy shrimp as, “a mess to eat, but worth it!” It’s hard to disagree with that assessment, although it doesn’t do justice to the degree of messiness you’ll experience when you come face to face with this bowlful of crustaceans. And, you will be face to face, because these large, beautiful shrimp are served with heads and shells intact.

The Tavern At Phipps launches new menu

ATLANTA, Ga. (June 17, 2019) – Since 1992, The Tavern at Phipps has served over five million patrons with a simple approach—a lively environment with upscale food. The Buckhead hot spot is known for its unique left-revolving door, flying napkins and live music has introduced a new menu to adapt to the needs of its growing clientele.

“The Tavern at Phipps has always been a place where ladies and gentlemen can meet to enjoy a broad menu and bar selection served with generous hospitality,” said CentraArchy CEO Vince Van Brunt. “As we continue to grow with the community we’ve served for nearly three decades, there was an opportunity to fine tune The Tavern formula in a way that appeals to everyone from our business lunch guests to our cocktail hour regulars.”

New menu items include a mild shishito pepper starter dish, fresh pastas and smaller cut steak options. For lunch, the seared ahi tuna salad is so far the biggest hit followed by the Thai kale and Mediterranean sea bass. Regulars will be pleased to see old favorites like Tavern chips and Carnegie style pastrami sandwiches remain. New twists on cocktail favorites are also featured on the new drink menu as well as prosecco on tap.

The Tavern remains an Atlanta fixture, full of traditions that place it in a category of its own. Known for its happy hours and talented bartenders, The Tavern at Phipps has always been a go-to spot for any night out.

As commercial space in the area continues to grow, The Tavern has also become a popular spot for both business lunches and after work cocktails and dining. The new menu changes, paired with minor tweaks to the restaurant’s atmosphere will help accommodate the evolving needs of guests.

“Our hope is that regulars winding down with a cocktail after work will stay and dine with us,” said Van Brunt. “We’d also like to ensure our regulars remain regulars for years to come, returning with their families to start new traditions. For a location that has done so well with a winning strategy for so long, we’ve obviously thought a lot about even the smallest changes and believe Atlanta will love the new Tavern at Phipps.”

The Tavern at Phipps is located at 3500 Peachtree Road and is open daily at 11:00 a.m., 365 days a year. Parking is available throughout Phipps Plaza. For more information, call 404-814-9640 or visit www.tavernatphipps.com.

web header - 25

Anniversary celebration set for November 9 beginning at 5 p.m.

ATLANTA, Ga. (September 27, 2017) – Since 1992, The Tavern at Phipps has become a Buckhead tradition with over five million estimated to have walked through its left-revolving door. Guests are invited to help celebrate the restaurant’s silver anniversary November 9, beginning at 5 p.m. Hosted by Atlanta’s “best bartenders” (Jezebel Magazine 2016 & 2017), the evening will feature plenty of dancing, live music and lots of The Tavern’s signature napkins in the air.

“From the very beginning, we wanted to create a place where ladies and gentlemen could meet in a lively environment for good food and a great value,” said Operating Partner of The Tavern at Phipps Alex Zengotita. “Today, The Tavern at Phipps is a unique fixture in Atlanta known as much for its generous hospitality as its broad menu and bar selections.”

The Tavern is full of traditions that place it in a category of its own within the vast Atlanta dining scene. Unique features like a quirky London-imported front door, more than 250 glasses broken behind the bar each week (in the name of flair!), famous happy hours with flowing cocktails, bustling atmosphere and the best looking wait staff have made The Tavern at Phipps a go-to spot for any night out. The classic American fare including hearty salads, premium, over-the-top pastrami sandwiches and trademark Tavern chips (a heaping pile of sharable, crisp tortilla chips layered with an endless choice of toppings) keep guests coming back for more.

The Tavern at Phipps is located at 3500 Peachtree Road and is open daily at 11:00 a.m., 365 days a year. Parking is available throughout Phipps Plaza. For more information, call 404-814-9640 or visit www.tavernatphipps.com.

CentraArchy Restaurants approach $100,000 goal for breast cancer research and care

PK - web header - a

Company-wide “Pink Kiss for the Cure” campaign expected to reach goal in seventh annual event.  

Atlanta, Ga. (September 26, 2017) For a seventh straight year, CentraArchy Restaurants continues its commitment to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with its own “Pink Kiss for the Cure” campaign. Each year, all 19 CentraArchy restaurants offer a limited edition Pink Kiss martini with 50 percent of the sales going directly to a breast cancer research and care organization. This year’s campaign contributions will go to the Susan G. Komen organization—specifically to fund breast cancer research and mammogram costs for the underserved locally.

“When we began Pink Kiss for the Cure seven years ago, the $100,000 goal set for ourselves seemed far away,” said CentraArchy vice president and COO George Ogorek. “As we pass this milestone, we hope our guests will once again join our associates this month in finding ways to raise community awareness and funding to fight a disease that continues to affect so many of our loved ones.”

To participate, guests simply order the “Pink Kiss” at any CentraArchy Restaurant (New York Prime, California Dreaming, The Tavern at Phipps, Chophouse New Orleans, Carolina Roadhouse, Joey D’s Oak Room, Chophouse ’47, Gulfstream Café or Burro Loco). Proceeds this year will help Susan G. Komen in its work to fund research, education and preventative care. Complimentary pink golf tees will also be offered at New York Prime and Chophouse ‘47 during the campaign. Guests are encouraged to share their photo-worthy images on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #PinkKiss.

California Dreaming restaurant to reopen September 22 with Irma repairs complete

CD_logo_Open

Popular Charleston dining hot spot redirected perishable food supplies to local charities, guests invited back for free croissants all day Saturday  

CHARLESTON, S.C. (September 22, 2017) – After withstanding both a soaking from Tropical Storm Irma early last week and subsequent small fire, Charleston, S.C. casual dining favorite California Dreaming will reopen Saturday, September 23 at 11 a.m. The restaurant is offering its signature fresh croissants for free all day Saturday, as a small token of appreciation to patient guests.

“We consider ourselves very fortunate to have pulled through this storm as well as we did,” said California Dreaming operating partner Brent Register. “While our scenic lower Ashley River location is part of the attraction to our location, it also makes us vulnerable to rare weather events like Tropical Storm Irma. Our sincere thanks go out to Charleston County police and fire services for their assistance as well all so many regular guests who have sent us their light hearted encouragement through social media. Our thoughts remain with individuals and businesses who continue in their recovery efforts.”

Tropical Storm Irma flooded the space below the building but left the upstairs restaurant area mostly undamaged. A small fire believed to be related to flooding of electrical equipment further complicated the repairs which were completed this week.

Once it became apparent the restaurant would not be able to serve guests for several days, store management worked quickly to donate over $10,000 worth of perishable prepared foods and food supply to Tricounty Family Ministries, an organization dedicated to fulfilling basic needs to those most vulnerable with respect and care. Learn how you can help at tricountyfamilyministries.org.

The restaurant’s 150 employees are eager to return to work and when not involved in cleanup efforts, enjoyed reading social media posts from regular guests. In fact, the free croissant giveaway was the staff’s idea of a small thank you to those who posted “#croissantstrong,” a play on the “#charlestonstrong” hashtag last week.

California Dreaming is located at 1 Ashley Pointe Dr., Charleston and will resume its regular lunch and dinner service from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
