Joule is Still a Jewel

February 28, 2009

We’ve loved Joule, the atmospheric neighborhood resto in Wallingford on 45th Street since our very first visit, and glad to report that things are still running like clockwork. 

Shrimp Potstickers and Risotto Balls at Joule on 45th Street in Wallingford.

Here are two of the appetizers we enjoyed immensely on our latest visit–Shrimp and Edamame Potstickers (left) and Kimchi and Rice Fritters in Spicy Tomato Sauce. The Whole Dourade was also outstanding, served with Sweet-and-Sour Eggplant and Almond Piccata, as was the Octopus with Fingerlings and Smoked Chili Broth. 

We’re thrilled that chef/co-owner Rachel Yang has been nominated as a semifinalist in the Rising Young Chef category in the 2009 James Beard Foundation Awards! Finalists will be announced on March 23.
