It's been a sweet four-month run with Kirkland's most revered restaurant camped out on Capitol Hill, but it's nearly time for Cafe Juanita to head home. James Beard Award-winning chef/owner Holly Smith has announced that Juanita will pop up in former Lark space at 926 12th Ave for the last time on Saturday, June 13. Make reservations here.
Back on the other side of the lake, the permanent Cafe Juanita, with has been undergoing renovations all year, hopes to reopen July 14, or perhaps even a few days earlier if stars align. Just in time for the weather, look forward to "beautiful new spaces and a patio for summer lounge enjoyment" back in Kirkland, Smith says.
