Orlando’s Johnson Diner gets good review in New York Times

leave a comment »

Johnson’s Diner, a soul food restaurant, has been a mainstay in downtown Orlando for 23 years that has served politicians, celebrities and professional athletes.

 Here is the New York Times review:

For a classic Southern breakfast served with a side of local history, start your day at this restaurant, a fixture in Orlando’s sizable African-American community for more than two decades. Soul food doesn’t get much better than the fish and grits, fried whiting with perfectly buttery grits. Although Johnson recently moved to a new location — the ground floor of a gleaming retail and apartment complex in the hard-scrabble Parramore area — the tablecloths are still vinyl, it’s still decorated with portraits of prominent black Americans like Ray Charles, and residents still linger and gossip.

Learn more about Johnson’s Diner from the Orlando Sentinel, Orlando Weekly, and MetroMix. It is considered a “real” Orlando destination spot.
