Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab restaurant sits right outside of Lafayette Square. The upscale, two-story restaurant is known for its American cuisine and rated 4.6 stars on yelp.com. The rhetoric of this space in relation to Lafayette square is relevant in two areas. First, the upscale nature of the restaurant attracts a certain clientele. This clientele drastically differs from either the homeless population that hovers around Lafayette park as well as the drug dealers that used to plague the area. The restaurant also contributes to the layered theme of the Square in that it lays just outside of the international perimeter of the park, yet offers the best of American cuisine.
