Carlo & Johnny Restaurant Review

: Carlo & Johnny serves creative cuisine in plush, country club-like surroundings. Steeped in history and adorned with antiques --- including doorknobs from Al Capone’s winter home --- the building was once a private mansion, nightclub, speakeasy and illegal gambling joint. Legend goes that entertainer Kitty Kallen was singing “Mule Train” in December 1949 when the casino was raided. The restaurant, from the folks behind Jeff Ruby’s, is named in memory of the two cops who had a hand in the infamous raid. These days, the menu features extensive sushi and sashimi choices. Entrées include wood-grilled salmon with sweet pepper piperade and ginger coulis; Kentucky bison strip steak with black pepper-berry demi-glace; and three bone-in rib cuts. Sides to share range from truffled creamed sweet corn to baked macaroni and cheese. Meanwhile, desserts showcase a homemade-ice cream sampler. Three separate dining rooms have their own distinct feel. With red leather banquettes, green velvet wall coverings and an eye-catching, lighted mermaid statue, the Emerald Room is pure old-world; the Ivory Room has hardwood floors and ceilings and unusual antique chandeliers; and the Grille Room has exposed brick walls, cathedral ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, solid stone hearth and trophy animal heads on the walls. There are three wine cellars. Live music rounds out the experience.
