A perfect table setting requires pristine linens and polished cutlery, except at off-Broadway restaurants where waiters set every table in postapocalyptic Vienna. Avoid avant garde eating with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of American fare at Justin's.
The chefs at Justin's forge a menu of snappy American fare inspired by the eatery’s live jazz performances. After completing their dinner application forms, guests can feast on orange-brandied glazed duck breast positioned atop mounds of mashed sweet potatoes and beans ($20.95). Jamaican jerk chicken weaves a complex tale of meaty flavors ($17.95), and Cajun-stuffed chicken breasts prove that what's inside counts with a hidden trove of crabmeat and shrimp stuffing ($18.95). Perfect for satisfying rumbling tummies or anchoring a plate made of balloons, shrimp and clam puttanesca weighs down its pasta with a heaping helping of capers, black olives, and anchovies ($19.95). Patrons can also excavate spinach and gorgonzola ore from a stuffed and mounted filet mignon adorned with a portabella demi glaze ($26.95). As they absorb live jazz among flickering candles in Justin's softly lit interior, couples can whisper sweet nothings to one another or show their love by planning a joint synchronized swimming routine.
love this place. Everything is usually perfect. Especially when you add the live music to your meal.Kara b, Yelp, 7/24/2011
