Profile

This venue is closed.

June is the kind of neighborhood spot that sparks high hopes: A small, banquette-lined lounge area gives way to close-set tables, separated into intimate nooks by gathered wire-mesh panels. The warmly lit bar is cozy, and the back room, with low-slung sofas, persimmon walls, and a tawny glow from overhead fixtures, invites lingering. But rather than relax into the kind of easy confidence the space inspires, the kitchen strives a little too hard, with dressed-up Southern-tinged stalwarts that don’t need the frills. Comfort-food staples like mac’n’cheese get fancy with a drizzle of truffle oil; the fungi reappear in house ‘mash’ potatoes. Sirloin and veg burgers are ample and filling, and a daily vegetable plate reflects the chef’s whim, the market, and the season. But beware of carelessness: dishes offered on the menu sometimes arrive at the table plated with different sides and sauces than promised. Desserts are made by the house pastry chef, who inexplicably dolls up a perfectly fine red velvet cake with an unnecessarily unctuous shower of sweetened, flaked coconut. Sometimes, simplicity is more welcome than innovation.

Brunch

Weekend brunch at June goes international, with “Belgium” waffles, huevos rancheros, ricotta pancakes, and veggie burritos, along with an impressive range of specialty cocktails.
