Johnny V Restaurant Review

: Johnny Vinczencz is enjoying a long run as one of South Florida's most popular practitioners of New American cuisine, and the menu at this sleekly contemporary restaurant on Las Olas Boulevard is like a book of poetry written by a master, with both new and selected works. Vinczencz and chef de cuisine Dwayne Adams offer food rooted in familiar flavors that have been culled from our country's regional cuisines, yet elevated with worldly-wise additions and daring dashes of gastronomic ingenuity. A playful sense of humor is also showcased in dishes like the "short stack" of portobello mushroom pancakes accompanied by sun-dried tomato butter and balsamic syrup. Or, take his twist on traditional Thanksgiving dinner: sage-scented Florida dolphin grilled and served with rock shrimp-plantain stuffing, lobster pan gravy and cranberry-mango chutney. In fact, take just about any item from this menu and you'll likely be impressed with the clarity and robustness of flavors. You're also bound to be pleased with the extensive wine list, attentive service overseen by general manager Kirsta Grauberger, and a lunch menu that features the chef's reinvented barbecue dishes.
