Mentions, if any

Hot Joy

Chef John Philpot likes intensity. "I love Asian, French cuisine, and I love intense flavors,” he says. "At Hot Joy, the whole experience from the moment you walk in is a sensory overload. From the decor being vibrant, to the music being a little too loud, to dishes packed with lots of spicy, salty, and savory flavors.”
