The dream was born working late-night shifts together at One Hot Mama’s. John Van Zuylen, a former manager at Wild Wing Café, OHM and R Bar known to friends as JVZ, found the match to realize the dream in longtime SERG Group bar manager Anthony Barone, aka Bonez.
“He’s a younger, cooler, faster version of me,” Van Zuylen said of his partner at JVZ BONEZ Americana Bar and Grill, the yearold sports-focused, family-friendly restaurant.
“I’m not a trained chef, but my family told me for years the things I cook at home should be on a menu somewhere,” he said. “I cooked so much during the pandemic that I realized I could personalize a menu and make it special.”
His meatless lasagna is named for his daughter, Ava, who helped design the menu.
The Johnny Daddy Fries (potato medallions with bacon, cheese and ranch), are the 12-year-old’s all-time favorite.
“It’s one of the biggest joys of my life to design this with and for her.”
Nothing more heartfelt comes out of the kitchen than the Greek chicken souvlaki pita wrap that JVZ made at least once a week for his wife Angela, who passed away in July after a long battle with cancer.
The space’s centerpiece is a wall of eight 70-inch TVs that can show eight separate games or show a big event. There are 28 large screens total, spread across the 4,500-square-foot layout that includes a private back room perfect for meetings and fantasy drafts.
Combine that with trivia, bingo, karaoke, an outdoor patio and occasional live music and you have a place for sports nuts from every fan base.
“There’s nothing like this around here, I guarantee you that,” Barone said. “This is a spot for everyone. John’s a Redskins guy, I’m an Eagles guy, but we love all teams, all sports. Any game you want on, you got it.”
