La Josie in West Loop – Lobster Tacos

Dined with my sisters at La Josie in West Loop over the weekend.  Got there for a late night reservation after enjoying several of these 3 Floyds Yum Yums at Meg’s in Humboldt Park:


Really good beer.  The pride of Munster, Indiana.

The Mexican hot spot on Randolph was still packed when we arrived at 10pm.  Grabbed a drink at the bar – a mezcal old fashioned for me:


Switched it up to the El Guapo once we were seated at a table.  It’s a peloton mezcal with jalapeno, lime, grapefruit and other good stuff.  Enjoyed a couple of those with dinner.  Ordered shrimp seviche and chips & guacamole while my sisters studied the entrees:



After all that reading, we each opted for tacos.  Lots of seafood options:


I selected lobster tacos, which were incredible:


Meg got pastor, didn’t get to try those.  Traded one lobster for one of Bridget’s steak tacos, another tasty choice:



After dinner we hopped over to Bar Siena to catch the last 3 innings of the Cubs rain-delayed battle against St. Louis.  The bar staff was hard at work and thought we wanted the replay of the game – understandable they wouldn’t expect a live game happening in St. Louis after midnight.  Alas, the Cubbies couldn’t pull out a win to top off our night.

All in all, though, a wonderful way to spend a rainy Saturday in the city.
