Johnny’s love for good food and drink is matched only by his love for odds and ends. He’s a non-rehabilitated picker, amassing a collection of collectibles that will one day inhabit museums or second-hand stores. On one outing, Johnny found a cast-iron relief of a smiling pig. With plans for a taqueria already marinating in his mind, the pig immediately captured the spirit of what would become Cochino. (And a new collection of porcine characters grew, finding a home in the restaurant.) A native of Denver, Johnny is also the Bean Brains behind noted Denver eatery The Squeaky Bean Farm + Table.
