I’m not sure about Chicago Joe’s personal life but I like his business cards. They may or may not reflect his past but there are little holes that look as though someone shot clear through them.
Chicago Joe’s is one of those old-style Italian restaurants that shouts “authentic” throughout the place. The establishment, open for 30 years, is located in an area close to downtown that is now part of a blossoming arts district. Joe’s is actually a home with a fireplace, tidy alcoves, colorful lights and a comfortable ambiance.
