~ Nancy Griffi n-Bonnaire
Driving west on Main Street in Marshall,
the scenery quickly changes from rural
landscapes to small, quaint businesses
featuring a host of products and
services. And then there's the big red
double-decker bus! This "bustaurant"
with an adjacent inviting parklike area
is
Johnny Monarch's, a joint venture
launched nearly a year ago by Brian
Lichorowic and Lorrie Addison.
A native of upstate New York, Brian was
raised by generations of restaurateurs,
including his great-grandparents, who
emigrated from Krakow, Poland. After
retiring from a career in technology,
Brian began dating Lorrie (an award-
winning kitchen designer), who learned
about his family's restaurant ties from
hearing stories and tasting timeless
dishes. Equipped with experience that
runs through his veins--not to mention
some amazing recipes from both of
their families--Brian and Lorrie decided
to launch a food business of their own.
Seeking something
quirky, they opted
for a bus instead of
a physical building
in which to serve
food. When an
online search
revealed a British
double-decker bus
located in Krakow,
the couple knew
it was a sign, and
had it shipped
to Virginia! After
completing repairs
and modifi cations
over a 10-month period, Johnny
Monarch's opened for business.
At fi rst glance, visitors may think the bus
is simply a food truck, but come aboard!
You'll fi nd tables where you can sit and
peruse the menu, and have made-from-
scratch meals prepared and served
to you. What's on the menu? There's
something for meat lovers, vegetarians,
and vegans alike. Perhaps you're in the
mood for a "messy sandwich" (Chicken
Speidie, Steak Me Away!, Veetball Sub,
or County Fair Footlong), served with a
warm or cold side dish. Or you may want
to try one of their already-established
favorites, like Monarch Meatloaf or the
award-winning Piedmont Tomato Pie--
both family recipes. You can even order
in advance to pick up "Feed `Em All"
pans to go for groups of six or more.
As with the entire atmosphere at Johnny
Monarch's, even its name invokes
nostalgia. Brian explains that his father
(John) signed off on love letters to his
mother as "Johnny Monarch" during
World War II. The name also pays
tribute to Lorrie's brother, a fallen
fi refi ghter named Johnny, and to honor
his memory, fi rst responders always
enjoy a discount at Johnny Monarch's.
Beginning in December, look for special
dinner menus Tuesday­Thursday from
5:00­7:00 p.m. and Fridays from 5:00­
8:00 p.m. Brian explains that their chefs
will offer unique dishes that don't appear
on the regular menu. In addition, senior
citizens can enjoy 2/$25 three-course
meal dinner specials on Tuesday and
Wednesday evenings. Reservations for
these meals are required.
Of course, if you prefer to enjoy your
Johnny Monarch's meal al fresco, there
are several picnic
tables in the area
surrounding the
bus. Fire pits will
be lit as weather
permits, so cozy
up--and feel free
to bring your four-
legged friends--
they're welcome
here. Come on
a Wednesday or
Saturday, and
you'll enjoy live
music (there's
even a stage) too!
In addition to Brian and Lorrie, their
small but loyal staff loves hosting events
onsite, and locals are catching on. Their
Halloween party featured "vegetarian
blood broth"--a veggie stew that was
so popular, it was added to the regular
menu. They're currently planning a "no-
beast Thanksgiving feast"--a complete
vegetarian meal that will be offered
at Christmas too. Be sure to stop by
after the Marshall Christmas parade
on December 7 for their "Throw Santa
Under the Bus" party, featuring holiday
cocktails and dinner specials!
Fresh, homemade comfort food in a
warm and welcoming environment:
what more could you want? Get yourself
