Junebar is Closed
HERE AT JUNEBAR, OUR GOAL WAS TO CREATE A UNIQUE, DELICIOUS EXPERIENCE FOR EVERY DINER AND DRINKER THAT WALKED THROUGH OUR DOOR. WE WERE SUCCESSFUL IN DOING JUST THAT, AND WE HAVE HAD SUCH A GOOD TIME ALONG THE WAY.
Now, our time with Junebar is coming to a close. We have accomplished what we set out to do, and the owner of our parent company would like to revive the Wildflower Cafe. We will help to facilitate that change, and it is our hope that some of our passion stays here with the building. You should expect some classic Wildflower dishes and some great new additions, too.
Chefs Nick and Trevor (who are 2 of the minds behind Nickel's Pit BBQ) will continue on with Nickel's, both in Watkins and Corning.
Thanks for taking the ride with us -- back to the Wildflower!
