360 north boyle avenue
st. Louis, mo 63108

- this was actually my second visit to juniper...it was too dark the first time and my iphone pics turned out horribly
- the full breadbasket is a must order...the ramp butter was amazing
- was disappointed that all four of our starters came out at the same time...server apologized and we rolled with it, but four plates at once for two people is overwhelming
- really enjoyed the beets, cauliflower, and fried oysters (bivalve and chicken) but was let down by the chicken skins as they lacked the level of spice i was expecting
- the pork belly entre was excellent...loved the way the kimchi cut through the richness
- pound cake was great, rice pudding was so so
- both of my visits to juniper were largely successful, and while i doubt i will become a regular, the restaurant will definitely be in my rotation
cotton gin - house barrel aged gin, st. germain, dry curacao, smoked corn syrup, lemon
missouri mule - darkhorse bourbon, cognac, sugar, mint
