Over on Austin 360, Matthew Odam broke the news that Nicholas Yanes, former chef and creative director at Uchi, will open his own Italian restaurant in Austin next spring. Called Juniper, the East Austin establishment will focus on Northern Italian cuisine, and serve cocktails and wine, highlighting gin. According to Odam, the restaurant’s representatives describe Juniper’s cuisine as "approachable, yet inventive classics with an artisan’s focus on premiere ingredients and technique."
