The Scene: Gut Check readers are undoubtedly acquainted by now with Juniper, chef John Perkins' Southern-cuisine concept in the Central West End that opened last year and knows how to throw down the perfect breadbasket. The cozy, candlelit dining room features country-inspired decor complete with rustic wood tabletops, exposed brick and cotton blossoms on every table. Vintage refrigerators await behind the bar, where a variety of fragrant craft cocktails are born.

The Food: Discounted appetizer options include deviled eggs, Andouille corn dogs, a take on chicken and dumplings, fried oysters battered in blue cornmeal, a country-ham flight, smothered frog legs, and chicken and waffles. The bar's specialty cocktails -- normally $9 but available for $6 during happy hour -- include nine options sorted into four different categories: boozy, bitter, herbal and sour.
