Juniper Rediscovers The Spirit Of the Pacific Northwest
Regional, Cascadian restaurant shows home is where its heart is

Vancouver, BC (November 18, 2015) — A fresh and vibrant distillation of the Pacific Northwest, Juniper proudly opens its doors December 3, 2015 in Vancouver’s Chinatown neighbourhood at 185 Keefer Street (corner Main Street).

The 104-seat, spirit-forward restaurant and lounge, designed by Simcic & Uhrich Architects, is committed to showcasing the best of Cascadia. From rocky shores to fragrant rainforests to arid deserts, Juniper has sought out the homegrown and handmade, forging relationships with producers and suppliers who share a reverence for craftsman-like quality and time-honoured traditions.
In her first Executive post, Chef Sarah Stewart (FRANK Restaurant at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Northern Ontario’s iconic canoe-tripping Camp Wanapitei and Vancouver’s Edible Canada) has created a menu that incorporates not only her love of the great outdoors, but her small-town, farming community roots and respect for Canada’s shared culinary heritage.

Sarah’s menu is complemented by internationally acclaimed bartender Shaun Layton’s (L’Abattoir) influence behind the wood, with a broad selection of artisanal and small-batch spirits as well as a rotating selection of curated ciders and craft beers. In a winking acknowledgement of the Juniper name, Shaun has introduced a gin-forward concept: A constantly evolving list of Gin & Tonics where different gins are poured with specific tonics based on the marriage of their aromatics.

Keeping the room on point is Operations Manager Sarah McCauley (Bacchus at the Wedgewood, Cin Cin, Bluewater Caf√©). A Vancouver hospitality veteran, Sarah is also the driving force behind the regional wine program, which focuses on new and little-known gems from up and down the Pacific Coast.
