About Johnny's
Downtown

Johnny’s Downtown, opened in 1993, is similar to the original Johnny’s Bar on Fulton Road, featuring pasta, veal and fish. The setting, a refurbished 1860’s Warehouse District building, formerly a general store, is the drinking and dining spot of locals and business people alike. Joseph Fall, the executive chef, oversees the food operations and is responsible for our crafting our signature dishes and creating daily specials. There are several wines by the glass to choose from and the wine list has nabbed an Award of Excellence from the Wine Spectator. There is piano music in the bar featuring Mike Petrone Monday-Friday, and Cliff Habian on Saturday evenings.

Dishes crafted with integrity

Our tradition of excellence is generations in the making. From housemade pastas to our great-grandmother's marinara recipes, our attention to detail prioritizes the integrity of our ingredients, atmosphere, and preparation. Our uniqueness is bred from authenticity.

Johnny's Marinara

The recipe for Johnny's marinara sauce has been passed down over the years from great- grandmother to our mother Frances. It was "Frannie" who taught our chefs the secrets and age-old techniques in the kitchen to prepare food the way she was taught. One of her many recipes was for our marinara sauce that we serve in our restaurants.

Available at Heinen's and other fine grocers
