Thursday, August 1, 2013 | 2 years ago
"I would cover myself in foie gras if I could," proclaims a heavyset, 30-something woman who's wearing a flowing, sleeveless white top.
She pops a cube of pungent Cabrales, a Spanish variety of blue cheese, into her mouth along with a sweet and spicy pecan from Johnny V's famed $28 tapas sharing platter. Then the people in her group, which is gathered around the restaurant's long, L-shaped stainless-steel bar, move quickly to discussing the disdain they felt for South Florida when they first moved down from "New Yawk."
There are plenty of people strolling along Las Olas Boulevard who have rejected New York's cost and frost as well as Miami's party-till-you-drop lifestyle. Yet when they want the sophisticated, fancy-sounding fare found in those cities but don't desire to travel or pay the prices, Johnny Vinczencz's namesake restaurant, Johnny V Restaurant|Lounge, is the choice.
