Chef Shawn Cirkiel wants to bring healthy dining to downtown with his next venture, juice shop Jugo. The Parkside Projects spot will emphasize healthy eating, from juices, smoothies, snacks, and larger dishes, all available to-go.
Jugo will offer up different juice and smoothie combinations (think apple/fennel/celery/romaine/grapefruit and peach/kale/peanut butter/apple juice). Other bites will include carrot hummus, spring rolls, spaghetti squash, and bone broth. Cirkiel worked with culinary director Justin Rupp to create the menus.
Since it's meant to serve as a pick-up spot, there are a few counter seats, but no tables. Michael Hsu is designing the space.
Cirkiel is keeping Jugo close to home — it’s just around the corner from his first and second restaurants, Parkside and Backspace. Cirkiel also operates Bullfight and Olive and June. Nearby its Brazos Street home are a JuiceLand outpost and Blenders and Bowls, both on East 4th Street.
Once Jugo opens in January 2017 (the specific date hasn’t been set yet), hours will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day.
