Boom times are here again. Exhibit A: a place where tuxedoed waiters are bringing you martinis and giant bowls of shellfish. In a former bank.

Time to bust out your gold-plated claw cracker for Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab, DC’s first outpost of the 100-year-old Miami stalwart, taking reservations now for a January 31 opening.

This is a refreshingly unashamed power spot. It’s in the former Union Trust Building across the street from the Treasury. It’s got soaring ceilings. Roman-style columns. That kind of thing.

First stop: the four-sided bar. No need to leave here, really, what with the Pimm’s Cup and Vesper cocktails coming at you. Oh, and the oysters Rockefeller and fresh stone crabs, too.

But move into the clubby, dark-wood-and-leather dining room and it’s like a spot where Sinatra would have hung out in the ’50s. That’s the place for some bone-in prime beef, flown in from Chicago.

Or just book the wood-paneled, fireplaced bank president’s office. Invite eight people and talk about how you’re too big to fail. But if you need more room, the second floor teems with private party spaces of all shapes and sizes, including your own dedicated bar.

Which is definitely too big to fail.
