About Joe Beef

Fred Morin co-founded Joe Beef in 2005 along with his wife Allison Cunningham. After 18 years, three kids, two cookbooks, three more restaurants, a line of retail spices and sauces, hundreds of paintings, even more fleeting fascinations of worldly leisures and trades, several local and international accolades including the ultimate benediction from the late, great Anthony Bourdain, Fred’s devotion to the pleasures of the table remains undying. His doting captivation for grand French classics and the bounty of the North American Eastern seaboard continue to play out each day on the Joe Beef menu whose regular offering is replete with fresh oysters, seafood, roast fish, fowl and meats served with paragonal sauces of the old world. His cerebral yet playful animateness make dining at Joe Beef a special treat not only for the delights that grace the table but also for the rich and profound conversations that are sparked when Fred finds his way to the dining room, with topics ranging anywhere from model trains to Jerry Garcia to neurogastronomy.
