A Few Words About Us

The Zagat survey describes Johnny’s Bar as “nirvana” inside the doors of this “Northern Italian Restaurant” that’s been an institution for over 80 years.

It’s “a real experience” that gives you the feeling of a great New York restaurant, from the “awesome food to waiters with personality.” The food is serious business with a large menu and daily specials featuring fish, veal and pasta. We let the food speak for itself by using natural techniques and many local ingredients.The extensive wine list is designed to complement the food by focusing on Italian reds, particularly Tuscan and Piedmontese wines.
