The Brunch Bunch: A Midtown Manhattan Brunch Preview of Juniper Bar


It isn’t often I head to Midtown Manhattan, but when Food and City (@Foodandcity) comes calling telling you there’s a crazy new brunch menu, you stop what you’re doing and rush over.

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of joining some of my fellow foodie influencers for a morning filled with delightful drinks, fantastic food and just a few extra calories. Juniper Bar, a cute and cozy spot near Madison Square Garden and Penn Station, now offers some of the best brunch menu items I’ve ever laid my eyes on!

Juniper Bar
237 W. 35th St, New York, NY 10001



Croque Madame

After indulging in some crafty cocktails, we started off the morning with the Croque Madame – layers of melty goodness topped with a fried egg. This breakfast buff’s dream come true is the perfect start to that weekend hangover cure.


Heartattack Stack

But when one buttery, calorie-laden dish just won’t suffice and you need to soak up those drinks from last night’s turn up,  the Heartattack Stack is your new best friend. This tower of fried chicken, bacon, ham, egg, and hashbrowns is your ticket to heaven… or to your cardiologist!


Red Velvet Waffles

Just don’t run to the doctor yet, you still have room for my favorite meal of the menu – the stuffed Red Velvet Waffles. This ooey-gooey stack of goodness is the perfect end to your brunch behavior and will satisfy that sweet tooth craving.

Did I make you hungry? No problem, Juniper is at your service to fulfill those cravings.  Just wear your loosest pants because you’re going to want to make as much room in your stomach as possible.


Some call me "The Cuban Carrie (Bradshaw)" because yes, I love love, fashion and hilarious conversations with my best girlfriends, but more than all that, New York City (and all it's yumminess), have my heart forever. I'm originally from Miami (of Cuban and Spanish descent) with a penchant for global cultures and cuisines. Whether those bold profiles come through a bite or a sip, I'm game for (almost) all things ingestible and imbibeable (is that even a word?). On most days (and nights and all hours in between), you can find me scouring the pages of culinary magazines and articles, online reviews, and of course, the proverbial self-proclaimed "foodie" Instagram profiles, in search of the latest and greatest in this wild world of food and beverage we live in. From fancy and fabulous to not so frilly, I'm a lover of ingenuity and insanity as it comes across on a dish, in a cup, or even suspended in the air (yes, presentation plays a big role sometimes!). Come along for the ride as I discover the Big Apple (and beyond) one bite, sip and 'gram at a time!
