Dinner at Joon

is a restaurant in Provincetown, MA. As of this writing, they have been open for their 3rd season.

Joon Means dear in Farsi but I am not sure if this is what the owners had in mind. 

Provincetown is a very interesting place historically. It dates from before the Pilgrims. Since the latter part of the 20th Century it has becomed gentrified and a much different place from when it started to catch on in the 1960's. It still is very much, as it has been for quite some time, a center for the arts and has become a bastion for the LGBTQ community.

On a recent visit to the area, Joon figured prominently on my Yelp app as I passed by, and my dining companions and I decided to take a peek.

They have a small, but cozy dining area seating perhaps 60 people at the bar and indoor tables.

They have an impressive Wine selection, but I was really there to treat my hosts in the area for a few good bites from the Menu on my last night on Cape Cod.

We started out with the avocado soup, a special that day.

It was fantastic, and was a cream of avocado soup with an Asian treatment. Ginger, soy sauce and tuna sashimi added to this dish. Unbelievably good. My dining companions and I were tempted to lick the inside of our bowls, something undoubtedly done if in the privacy of our own kitchen!

The smoked halibut flatbread was next and was equally as great.

Smoked halibut was accompanied with capers, grape tomatoes, basil puree and lemon zest. The citrus and smoked notes of the halibut were prefect together. Wonderful.

We finally finished up with a Kobe burger.

This very well portioned patty of Kobe beef was served with truffled Cheddar, foie gras aioli, fries and smoked ketchup. Another slice of heaven on a plate.

Joon was a really good find. The food is quite remarkable and highly recommended. If in Provincetown, this is a must do. Reservations, unfortunately, are almost obligatory when the establishment is open during season.

It's a wrap for another post on Forks.
