Local Love: Joe's Midnight

The new restaurant, which takes over a former drive-thru liquor store at 6101 North Seventh Street, specializes in wood-fired fare ranging from blistered shishito peppers and grilled wings to oven-roasted foie gras with blackberry jam and cashew butter. With a '90s hip-hop theme, Joe's owner hopes to bring an edgy, irreverent vibe to the bourgeoning neighborhood, which will be complemented by a menu of beer, wine, and spirits on tap and a kitchen that's open until 2 a.m. 

The Joe's Midnight Run building was originally built in the 1960s as a liquor store, and has been expanded to make room for the restaurant's bar and kitchen. Diners can take in the original wood ceiling beams that stretch over the dining room, and a large skylight in the center of the space bathes the room in soft natural light.

Wooden accents, exposed brickwork, and playful lighting give the space a subtle Midcentury Modern style, while textural elements like a steel partition keep things fresh. The brick wall opposite the restaurant's open kitchen references the '90s hip-hop theme with quotes and sayings.

Learn to build a hanging gutter planter. Join our workshop and learn to use a power drill and other tools to create a simple planter from vinyl gutters and caps. Then, personalize your project with paint and, with the addition of rope and hooks, the space-saving design can be used to grow and display a variety of plants.
