Like piñatas, bodies must be filled with quality ingredients to effectively satisfy the demands of screaming children. Summon the strength to endure a baseball batting from a blindfolded child with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of seafood, steaks, and more at Johnny D's Restaurant.
Crowned the 2009 Readers’ Choice Best of the Best New Restaurant in the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, Johnny D’s features a menu of daily seafood specials, racks of lamb, and other American-style eats. Open for dinner only, Johnny D's silences the cries of hungry stomachs with its popular blackened ahi tuna, seared rare and thinly sliced and served over a wasabi-beer sauce with jasmine rice and baby bok choy, cabbage's adorably tender offspring ($21). Steak offerings range from tender filet mignon rubbed in a house blend of coffee and spices ($21) to foot-pedaled car topplers such as the 12 oz. béarnaise-topped rib eye ($23).
Eighty-eight percent of more than 90 Urbanspooners recommend Johnny D's Restaurant.
