Restaurants have a way of drifting from their original paths, relying too much on old menu items and old ways of doing things. Other times, they become so attached to novelty that the things that made them brilliant fade away.

Not so at 10-year-old Johnny V. And that’s because it’s led by a strong-willed chef whose name is on the door. Johnny Vinczencz knows how to manage his customers’ wishes and his own creative needs
