Shrimp po' boy at Johnny's Half Shell

Owned and run by renowned culinary pair Ann Cashion (chef) and John Fulchino, Johnny’s relocated to North Capitol Street a few years ago. The restaurant has stayed the same, though: it’s famous for its super high-grade seafood ingredients, from oysters on the half shell to sea scallops lightly sauteed and served with roasted vegetables and a lemon caper sauce. Jazz and blues—and strong drinks—create a vibrant atmosphere and the restaurant hums with its own success.
