Simple laziness has spurred many culinary inventions, including the sandwich, the blender, and the pizza, which was invented as a way to wheel heavy ingredients from place to place. Transport your palate with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Joey's Restaurant in Chagrin Falls.
The chefs at Joey’s Restaurant handcraft a dinner menu brimming with house-made pastas and traditional Italian fare, serving guests within a brick-lined dining room. Diners can warm up jaw muscles for competitive chew-a-thons with a caesar Joey salad ($6.54), which comes adorned with tomatoes and artichoke hearts, before making their ways to heftier entree dishes, such as the fettuccine alfredo ($17.60) or the Sicilian-style Terentina pizza ($12.65 for a small; $18.95 for a large) sporting roasted red peppers and clams. Joey's culinarians regularly hunt for fresh market produce, mounting majestic lettuce heads above their mantles before using the rest of the poached goods for veggie-heavy entrees, such as the eggplant parmigiana ($19.25) and the mushroom-speckled chicken marsala ($19.80).
Early every morning, the chefs of Joey’s Restaurant peruse Cleveland’s markets for the freshest vegetables and meats to incorporate into marinara-oozing lasagna, sherry-sautéed scampi, or Sicilian-style pizza. Chefs adhere to authentic family recipes that have been in use for more than 30 years, starting with fresh batches of homemade noodles that soak in sauces such as marinara, alfredo, or garlic butter. Servers set down dishes on red-checkered tables, organizing the plates family-style so each guest can sample and share dishes without having to compete for bites in a fierce game of musical chairs, and the exposed brick in the dining room adds a romantic air to a night on the town.
