New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

In his decade long run as one of South Florida's most praised practitioners of New American cuisine, Johnny Vinczencz has been nicknamed everything from "The Caribbean Cowboy" to "The Guava Gaucho," but his food is always recognizable by familiar flavors rooted in our country's regional cuisines -- just disguised a bit with worldly-wise additions and daring dashes of gastronomic ingenuity. Witness his robustly comforting sage and rosemary chicken cooked confit-style, paired with white truffle Yukon mashed potatoes at his Las Olas namesake spot. Or with baked tubers filled with truffled sour cream, melted manchego cheese, and piquant chilaca chili. A lounge area in back allows diners to indulge in pre dinner and late-night grazing from a tapas menu. Johnny V's service is solid, staff attitude just right, wine list extensive, cuisine top-notch. Don't worry about what to call the chef; just call for reservations.

    The Blue Corn Crusted Calamari is highly recommended by Barbra Streisand. And yes, she is right. It's delicious! And the smoky tomato soup is yummy.

  • VisitLauderdale on 03/12/12

    Two uber-yummy must-have apps: wild mushroom pancake “short stack” & the fresh Buffalo mozzarella and grilled vegetable “pie”

    Come and enjoy Sunday Brunch done Johnny’s way with $10 unlimited mimosas.

    tomato soup at lunch is amazing -- the little goat cheese toast will kill you it is so good.
