Summary: A whimsical culinary journey.

Nestled in the heart of Little Italy, Juniper & Ivy stands out as a culinary gem in a converted 1920s warehouse. Its lively atmosphere is matched by a dynamic menu that tantalizes with a mix of modern American dishes, inventive desserts like the reimagined Yodel, and a unique wine list. Patrons can indulge in a range of flavors from the West, enhanced by Latin and Asian influences, all while soaking in the rustic charm of exposed beams and colorful art. Whether you're a meat lover savoring the New York strip or a vegetarian delighting in ancient grains with seasonal roasted veggies, Juniper & Ivy caters to every palate with its creative and ever-changing offerings. The exhibition kitchen adds an element of excitement, as guests can witness the magic unfold, while the bar area buzzes with the clinking of elegant craft cocktails. From the smoky surprise of a warm buttermilk biscuit served under a dome to the homage of the off-menu burger, this eatery provides an unforgettable dining experience that both respects tradition and embraces innovation.
