Dinner At Jonny D's
By The Foodies / email@example.com
With the weather being the way it has been the last few weeks,
who could blame us for a bit of indulging in the rich staples
of mother Italy you never know when youll be
Our Italian adventures brought us this week to Jonny Ds,
a neat pizzeria and Italian eatery right at the doorstep of
Huntington Station, dishing out pies and other delights since
2005. The décor, anchored by rich, dark wooden benches,
mottled beige tiles and highlighted by images harkening back
to Italy, make you want to stay a while.
For good reason, too theres plenty of good stuff
to eat, especially if you might have to stockpile some energy
for impromptu shoveling. When you walk in, youll be
greeted by their appetizing pizza case. A cheese slice ($13.95
for a pie) is a treat, with a perfect balance of zesty marinara,
cheese and seasonings. Other appetizing choices include pepperoni,
Grandma or any one of 10 toppings, but sadly we didnt
indulge. We had to save room for the main attractions.
The Chicken Marsala ($11.95), featuring two lightly breaded,
tender chicken cutlets, was a hit at our table. Served over
spaghetti, the delicate marsala wine sauce, complemented by
sautéed mushrooms and hints of lemon, is a delectable,
filling choice especially when the dish is piping hot
and its freezing cold outside.
If youre in the mood for a salad, check out the Caesar
($4.95 small, $5.95 large), with its fresh greens, mozzarella
and garlic croutons. Add chicken for $1.50 on a small and
$2.50 for a large, and add a grilled, tasty dimension to the
salad. Check out their Greek, tomato and mozzarella and tossed
salads, too, ranging from $4.50 to $5.95 for small salads.
Their chicken rolls ($5.95) are a great, filling choice, too.
Its larger than most, and comes with sliced chicken
cutlets, mozzarella cheese and marinara, wrapped in a surprisingly
flaky roll. Other choices include sausage, pepperoni, broccoli
and eggplant, and one could expect them to be just as good
as the chicken.
If you make it there on a Friday or Saturday and you have
a sweet tooth, save room for fresh zeppoles and cannolis.
We didnt get a chance to try them, but it sounds like
just the ticket after shoveling up wet snow and sipping on
a cup of hot cocoa or coffee. So long as its hot.
