Juniper is thrilled to introduce Nic’s Picks, a special tasting menu available at the chef’s counter. The new program will offer guests an opportunity to experience the best of Juniper’s cuisine through a variety of the restaurant’s most popular dishes selected by Chef Nic Yanes. Chef Yanes explores many unique facets of Italian cuisine within the menu while maintaining Juniper’s high standards and integrity.
The menu will change regularly to highlight selections of the seasons as well as the whims of the chef team. Currently, the menu includes a selection of cicchetti, or Italian bar snacks, seasonal salads, handmade pastas, and items from the wood-fire grill.
Some of the items on the menu now include: cicchetti with marinated mushroom and prosciutto, puffy potato and caviar, tortellini en brodo, and arancini; oysters on the half shell with sambuca mignonette; celery root soup with blue crab and drawn butter; warm winter greens salad with Parmesan zabaione; quail saltimbocca with Barton Springs Mill blue corn polenta, sauerkraut, and mustard; and sanguinaccio dolce with dark chocolate, burnt honey, and tangerine.
Guests can make reservations 24 hours in advance on OpenTable. The program is offered Thursday – Saturday at $65 per person excluding tax, gratuity, or beverage.
