Roland Park: Johnny’s

Tony Foreman and Cindy Wolf own five restaurants and two wine cellars in Baltimore. While I’ve heard great things about all of them, the only one I’ve visited was Johnny’s in Roland Park. But if their other restaurants are as good as Johnny’s, I’ll gladly make my rounds to all of them. Finding Johnny’s can be a little difficult because Apple maps is horrible and the restaurant cannot be seen from the street. Regardless, this cosy spot is definitely worth a visit. The menu and decor is influenced by a trip one of the owners took to California and an eatery he visited there.



When you enter, the atmosphere is very warm and inviting and each time I’ve been, the waiter has been extremely knowledgeable and helpful. This visit was no different than my others and my friend and I started the meal with the delicious Hand Cut Thyme & Sea Salt Chips. The chips came with a side of their spectacular horseradish ranch dip. The chips are nice and crispy without being too greasy or oily. And that horseradish ranch dip was perfect to dip just about anything into.

For my friend’s main course she ordered the Chicken Quesadilla. Inside was asparagus, grilled poblanos & red onions, pepperjack cheese and grilled chicken. Everything inside the quesadilla was cooked perfectly and all of the ingredients came together very nicely.

I ordered the Grilled Cheese which came with slices of well cooked bacon on it. It was a great grilled cheese, but there was nothing spectacular about it.

The grilled cheese came with a side of Johnny’s Fat Fries. The fries were served skin-on and cooked in duck fat. They were delicious and a perfect side to any grilled cheese.

While what we ordered only reflects the restaurants American and Mexican flavors, in the past I’ve had the hoisin BBQ brisket sandwich and loved it. You really can’t go wrong with anything you order.
