Dinner at Juniper 61

Wauwatosa has some great local restaurants, and Juniper 61 is one of them. It's owned by the same people who own Lulu's in Bay View, which is exciting, because you can get the same, delicious Asian slaw and homemade potato chips with bleu cheese sauce at Juniper.

I had dinner there Wednesday night with two ladies I worked with. On Wednesdays, bottles of wine are $10 and dinner was delicious. And best yet, Jeanne and Janice graciously let me take photos of their meals.

For an appetizer, we ordered the tempura green beans, which I've gotten every time I've been to Juniper. They're quite good and the dipping sauce, although a bit salty, really works well.

I ordered the Cyprus chicken pita: marinated chicken on a pita with red onion, green olive tapenade and oven-dried tomatoes, with a side of feta-yogurt sauce. And of course I had to get both the Asian slaw and chips.

Jeanne got a burger on rye bread, which she said was really good.

Janice got a sandwich I thought about ordering: the Tuscan melt, with provolone, basil, tomatoes and red onions.


  1. The Tuscan Melt looks just like LuLu's Sicilian Melt (which had herb olive oil on it too) that I had last week! Looks delish!

  2. Those green beans look delicious.
