Juniper & Ivy
San Diego, CA
Located in San Diego's Little Italy neighborhood, Juniper & Ivy is Top Chef Allstars winner Richard Blais' cosmopolitan restaurant. One of the many architectural features includes a soaring ceiling, crisscrossed with antique redwood beams. A curvaceous banquette is set in front of an open kitchen that showcases some of Blais' unique talents involving liquid nitrogen and sous-vide cooking.

Since opening in March, the Top Chef All-Stars winner’s spirited eatery has wowed critics and patrons alike with inventive cuisine and an inspiring interior." -- Architectural Digest, May 31, 2014
