SquareMeal Review of
JUNIPER DINING CLOSED PERMANENTLY IN 2015
Highbury residents are pleased as punch with this accomplished little local. It’s an unassuming space of muted colours & simple wooden chairs, but Juniper’s experienced chef-patron saves the
sparkle for the menu. The slant is mod Euro, & though the reliable favourites are here, they’ve often got something extra – so duck liver parfait comes with sage & orange butter, smoked
duck & pickled shallot, & rabbit loin is wrapped in bacon & served with leeks, spinach & a wild garlic & mushroom mousse. Cheese comes from La Fromagerie just down the road,
while fish is bought daily, much of it to appear as specials ‘designed to sell out’ (phone ahead to place your order). The wine list is far from dull, service is friendly & kids can tuck into
two courses & a drink for a fiver.
