The Juniper Suite is a slice of serenity in frenzied Midtown. Modern yet organic, the Asian-inspired, bi-level restaurant and lounge manages to be both cool and cozy at once: Dark wood floors and pod-like club chairs offer warmth to the ground-level dining area and mezzanine, and cuboid stools and light fixtures add a spicy glow to the cave-like first-floor bar and larger upstairs lounge. Certain quirks, like shadow-box displays of bright green "seaweed" on yellow backgrounds, set this place apart. A thoughtful, eclectic wine list with some rarely seen bottles complements the global fare. Divided into small plates and entrees, the seasonal menu lines up East-meets-West dishes—crisp tempura asparagus, Thai barbequed wild boar chops with gremolata. They also serve wild cards, like a South Carolina-style pulled pork sandwich with smoked Gouda and onion jam. Tops on the cocktail list, crafted by mixologist Jerri Banks, is the signature Juníperotivo, an aromatic blend of Junípero gin, pomegranate molasses, mint, and lime. If drinks and the addictively salty crunch of the fried-wonton bar snacks aren't enough, don't worry: The kitchen is open until closing time. —Colleen McKinneyRecommended Dishes
