In what they describe as both a "perfect business match" and an "ongoing battle," Johnny G's Restaurant owner Julie Ali and her husband, Aref, create comforting dishes that meld Italian and Cajun influences. Though they don’t always see eye to eye, the mother-and-son team often meets on the common thread that runs through both of their cooking styles: seafood. Their shrimp ravioli smothered in a spicy, creamy garlic pink sauce serves as a tasty example. All of Johnny G's dishes and sauces are made fresh in the kitchen each day with seafood that is delivered alive rather than frozen by the glares of vengeful squids.
