A new Southern-inflected breakfast and lunch eatery, Little Bird, will open in the space that currently holds Juniper, chef John Perkins announced today.
Perkins had previously announced that Juniper (360 N. Boyle Avenue) will be moving to 4101 Laclede. That move frees up its charming, brick-walled home on Boyle for a different restaurant — what Perkins says will be Juniper's "little sister."“Little Bird was thought up years ago, but now is finally coming to fruition as the natural breakfast/brunch complement to Juniper’s lunch and dinner," Perkins said in a press release. "Our guests have often asked, ‘When are you going to do brunch, when are you going to do breakfast,’ and it’s a perfectly reasonable question as both are often the most immediate expression of Southern food that folks are familiar with. I believe Little Bird will be a welcome addition not only to our brand and the guests familiar with it, but also the dining scene in St. Louis.”
