John’s on 12th is everything I had hoped it would be and more. First of all, it has history. Open since 1908, they used to serve alcohol out of tea cups during Prohibition. Not only was Boardwalk Empire filmed here, the real life Lucky Luciano and Arnold Rothstein used to frequent the place, and when you walk in, you feel like nothing has changed since that time.
But if that isn’t enough, they have a vegan menu. I would not expect an old school place like this to have such a thing, but I’m so glad they do.
Booths and floor are original. Make sure to check out the giant candelabra covered in wax in the back. at John's of 12th Street
