The same restauranteurs, Sarah and Cameryne, who brought Lulu Cafe to Milwaukee, opened Juniper 61 December 2008. The concept was to create a restaurant similar to Lulu Cafe, but to expand on the menu. This ëmodern American jointí has been a widely popular spot for dates and group outings, serving up a wide variety of shareable small plates and specializing in Pizza. Three year Head Chef Darin has kept the menu creative while collaborating with Cameryne and Sarah. The people of Milwaukee and travelers come and enjoy the beautiful and naturesque themed decor and in the summer, enjoy the outdoor patio seating.It is recommended to try a few of the small plates when dining at Juniper 61.
