Johannes Restaurant Review: Johannes is located in an unassuming storefront along Indian Canyon Drive. Under the toque is Austrian-born and namesake chef Johannes Bacher, who serves up inventive Austrian cuisine in a minimalist, yet elegant room. Fresh seafood and duck punctuate the menu, but those who want to visit the chef's culinary roots should order the cheese spätzle or signature wienerschnitzel served with a lemon-cranberry jelly (get an apple strudel martini to put yourself in the mood). Escargots are simple and satisfying, too, even if it's a dish closely associated with the French. Grass-fed meats include a New Zealand rack of lamb and a venison loin also from Down Under. Bacher’s subtle, creative fish dishes are exciting as well. Imported beers, saké and an extensive wine list, with both European and American selections, round out the cosmopolitan experience.
