This Davis Square eatery has been operated by the DeLellis family since the late Johnny opened it in 1969. Originally focused around roots music, Johnny D's has expanded to include everything from bluegrass and funk to Afrobeat and zydeco. Wilco, Gillian Welch and the Dixie Chicks have all graced the stage, and Susan Tedeschi used to head up the Blues Jams, which still happen on Sundays. Expect no shortage of blues-infused rockabilly acts, as well as some dance-y bands. The menu is also worth a look, with dinner items like blackened catfish. Johnny D's old-timey décor is a quirky mish-mash of vintage beer posters and vinyl albums.
