Karen Masterson - Johnny's Luncheonette, Newton

Karen visited our class at the Cabot After School Program in Newton, bringing her enthusiasm for sustainability & fish stew! In collaboration with Red’s Best Seafood, Karen created a delicious Monkfish Stew recipe that was the hit of our dinner party. She taught us about sustainable fisheries and how important it is to eat local fish that you might be new to us, i.e. MONKFISH! It was delicious, thank you, Karen.

Johnny’s Luncheonette’s new owners, Karen and Kevin Masterson, know what an iconic treasure Johnny’s is to the neighborhood, and to all people who travel near and far for a really great diner.  From a great cup of coffee to a sparkling raspberry lime rickey, to the selection of local craft brews and wine, you’ll find a whole lot of love, attention and home-made food and hospitality at Johnny’s. 

What’s New at Johnny’s? The fresh local white fish caught by local Boston fisherman. The breads from Iggy’s. The burgers sourced with beef from a small ranch in Maine.  Local favorite Richardson’s ice cream at the soda fountain. House-made sweet potato fries. Vegetarian dishes, Gluten free dishes, and more. The Matzoh Ball Soup is a perennial favorite.

Johnny’s Is the Anytime Place for Everyone.  See you soon!
