Food Republic wrung some more info out of Kevin Sbraga about his '80s throwback concept, Juniper Commons — and wow, is it precious. Like, a-tablespoonful-of-bacon-bits precious. Or, in fact, tiny-little-tabletop-salad-bar precious.
Inspired by nostalgia for special-occasion family meals at the Pub in Pennsauken, Sbraga wanted to incorporate a salad bar into the new spot. Except, he says, he decided that the reality of a communal salad bar is "just gross."
So instead, he'll bring a miniature version to your table. If tableside Caesar prep is not interactive enough for you, you'll be able to have a bare salad delivered alongside a slew of topping options, in miniscule amounts.
Check out the full article for a few more teases on the direction the concept is taking.
