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