Zengo Chipotle Lobster Grits

Congratulations to all the winners!  Now I chose today to wrap things up because the weeklong celebration is not quite over…I have one more awesome gift to share with you guys.  Now that we are in December, the new countdown to five more years begins and I want to pick your brains on what you want to see in the future on Johnna Knows Good Food.  What better way to present this idea than with Zengo, the Chinatown fusion restaurant that is constantly reinventing itself.  Recently the restaurant launched a bottomless brunch menu packed full of breakfast classics with a twist.  The Salmon Benedict, Chipotle Lobster Cheddar grits and the Juava Mimosas are among my faves on the menu.  In addition to the brunch, I spend alot of time scouring the lunch and happy hour menus which offer daily specials.

I appreciate how Zengo constantly stays afloat with the changing restaurant trends but stays true to its original premise.  This is what I am aiming to do with Johnna Knows Good Food in the next five years.  The page needs a facelift and I want to get some consistency in what types of posts I provide week to week similar to the way Etiquette Tuesday has been on the site weekly.  Today I officially end the celebration (*tear) with a giveaway where the winner will receive a $75 gift card to Zengo.  Tell me what you would like to see more on Johnna Knows Good Food and you are automatically entered to win.  You have to be subscribed to the JKGF weekly newsletter to enter (I’ll make this part easy for you, sign up here!).  The winner will be selected at midnight tonight.  Thanks again and keep reading, there’s plenty more to come.
