Juniper

Pop-up and underground dining star John Perkins puts down some roots at Juniper: A Southern Table and Bar. Inspired by his pop-up “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” Juniper’s menu draws its down-home, Americana dishes from Appalachia to Louisiana, with such dishes as Zapp’s potato-chip crusted fried catfish, “pork-n-beans” and Southern fried chicken. Juniper’s signature is its fried chicken and waffles, with each season bringing a different iteration. Appetizers, or “snackies,” include standouts such as pimento grilled cheese with bacon and Brussels sprouts jam and a Mason jar of smoked trout and country ham rillettes. The cocktail menu keeps with the Southern theme and leans heavily on rum and bourbon, and the thoughtfully crafted highballs, such as the hibiscus liquor with Mexican Coke, should not be overlooked. The cozy, refurbished-barn-like interior makes this an ideal spot to eat some unapologetically fried food and sip a stiff drink.
