...but nothing else is. No restaurant can be at its best on New Year's Eve, but deterioration at Johnny's is a few years in the making. The external signs are the vertical food (so last century), and the oversized wine glasses, but more seriously is a truly mediocre dinner for two for $100. Everything tends to be too heavy (buttery, oily) and overseasoned. No flavor of pork and no color of pink to be detected in the pork chop loudly pronounced as "pink" on the bill, which translated to "reheated less than our other pre-cooked meals". Everything comes on a mound of something reheated (mashed potatoes, pasta), and everything has to be at least 3" high. The sad thing is just how good attention to detail was when Johnny's first opened, everything announced the presence of someone who really cared in the kitchen. But restaurants in this area have a shelf life to 2 years, since Amherst treats familiar restaurants as dear friends who can do no wrong unless (like a certain long-popular oriental venue) they mistreat their staff - an offense far greater here than mistreating their diners).
