Philadelphia, PA - The owners of Morgan's Pier, Rosy's Taco Bar, Harper's Garden and Craft Hall announces a brand-new, entirely open-air new restaurant to open this Friday. Outdoor dining destination Juno will make its grand debut this Friday in the middle of the Spring Arts District at 1033 Spring Garden Street - in the former location of Llama Tooth.
"We have had many ideas for this unique space and neighborhood," said Hornik. "We were strongly influenced by our other outdoor concepts and our team's love of the outdoors. We wanted to celebrate the best of what summer in the city could look like. For me personally, I think the location set on Spring Garden is perfect to bring a new concept like this too. The Spring Arts District is the last great frontier for commercial development in the city - and there's a lot of potential for other restaurants and businesses to follow. Also being a huge music lover, when the time is right for next year, we will be a great option for those going to Union Transfer before and after shows. We hope Philadelphia enjoys what we have created. Thanks to our whole team for pulling together a brand-new restaurant during the most difficult of times. We can't wait to offer a refreshing new option for city-dwellers staying in the city."
Let's get started with some libations to enjoy with our atmosphere.
- The Elderflower JAWN. - Dark and rich with a mystical background and citrus plateau you will taste midnight just a little.
- Summertime - Swimming in melon infused with mint we have entered a door to a better day. Once you surface to exhale, and then dive in again.
Out of the gate, the starters were top-notch and recommended by the attentive and personable staff. Our waiter Bernardo brought forth a spicy corn salad that had just the right amount of heat and spice with a creamy and embracing flavor.
- Coctel De Camarone - This Mexican shrimp salad was so much more. How can it be sweet and savory in the same bite? I do not know but it truly can. Taunting its robust ceviche feel, with diced avocado provided with delicate tortilla chips to raise the wildness to your lips. Beautifully presented and ravenously eaten.
- Tacos - Trying both the beef and pork versions, which were presented with the flair of a bullfighters cape these zesty ensembles had a rhythm your taste buds could dance to. So smoky and tender.
- The Platanos Fritos - We went out on a sweet note with ice cream so rich you hope it leaves you in its’ Will and plantains so sweet they rival candy.
This wonderful venue is perfect for a little low-key, relaxation. A true change of pace from the norm. So if you want to escape your world, just for a little while, walk thru the doorway at JUNO and unwind.
