Juniper Restaurant will serve lunch Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Some of the highlights of the lunch menu is the Pumpkin Rissotto, a perfectly hearty yet healthy winter dish. But their Chicken Sandwich – with thinly-pounded and perfectly-breaded chicken breast topped with Juniper’s legendary bacon, housemade pickles, arugala, sage aioli and sriracha – will make the rest of your work day tolerable. Of course, they have artfully prepared salads and that killer Carrot Soup that you will want to drink by the gallon.

The party is FREE to those that dress up as Santa (or holiday-themed) and bring a toy.
