Joe's Shanghai in Elmhurst: Time to Revisit?

Jim Leff | Jan 9, 2001 03:24 AM

I've completely blocked the Joe's Shanghai in Elmhurst (on Broadway) out of my mind. Even though I live about a mile away, I've disinherited it after a couple of bad experiences there (confirmed by others on this board). Alas, it was wonderful on its very first day of operation...when, the man himself, Joe, was manning the main wok. But Joe's like a pea in a shell game, and this place quickly turned into a chronically empty shell.

But years have gone by. Has anybody been lately? Is there anything survivable there? At least maybe some rice cakes with shrimp or something?
