Juniper on Fourth will be open Friday through Tuesday. The restaurant and bar features indoor/outdoor dining with a focus on what’s fresh, local, fun and family-forward. The new, open-air Tap Garden welcomes guests with signature cocktails on tap, beer, and wines by the glass, while the indoor bar will also offer a full cocktail list.

At lunch, guests can expect sandwiches, salads, and bar bites, which are served all day. Dinner will also feature heartier composed plates, and a kids menu will be available during lunch and dinner. A sampling of lunch menu items includes Swedish meatballs (potato purée, gravy, lemon herb salad), also available as a sandwich; a tri-tip sandwich; a brisket grilled cheese (American, Gruyere, and white cheddar cheeses, caramelized onions, salsa mojo); and a signature cheeseburger. Dinner plates include items such as smoked quail; “Artemisia Lamb” (roasted carrots, Jerusalem succotash, artemisia, chimichurri); and both a “Little Fish” (currently King Salmon) and “Big Fish” offering (whole fried, local rockfish with achiote, house-made tortillas, slaw, salsa verde).
