Juniper Cafe one of Bon Appetit's 50 best new restaurants
🥢 Greetings. Thomas here.
Last week, Bon Appetit named Juniper Cafe and Bakery one of the country's 50 best new restaurants.
- Being journalists, Emma, Kristal and I had to investigate ourselves.
Details: Led by the chefs behind Candler Park's Lazy Betty, the colorful spot serves up a super-smart fusion of Vietnamese and Southern cuisine.
- Think savory coconut chicken crepe, Vietnamese hot fried chicken, a delightfully fluffy and crisp banh mi with caramelized pork, and a packed noodle salad with Thai fried tofu.
What they’re saying: In the days following the article's release, the team saw double the expected number of customers — including some who drove an hour to try the food, general manager Shauna D. Whitson told Axios.
The verdict: It's well worth the hype. Don’t miss the paper-thin crispy okra appetizer, Vietnamese coffee and a gooey signature cookie stocked with pecans, oatmeal and chocolate chips.
