Larry McGuire’s newest restaurant, June’s, is all set to open on Tuesday, July 26, on South Congress The neighborhood spot, named after beverage director and master sommelier June Rodil, will have a wine bar and cocktail program, as well as serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The menu, developed by McGuire and partner Tom Moorman will include ham sandwiches, baked goods and desserts, and other bistro-inspired dishes. Wine is the star, along with takes on classic cocktails, like the Baby Doll Martini. To keep customers caffeinated, the restaurant will brew up Stumptown Coffee.
Update, July 26: June's website is now live with menus, with a long wine list and cocktail options, breakfast (baked goods, eggs, and even a breakfast chalupa) served from 8 to 11 a.m., and entrees like the shaved ham and butter sandwich, a Spanish matzo ball soup, and more.
Everything is served in an aesthetically-pleasing setting, as the group is wont to doing. The patio is dog-friendly, too. Hours will be from 8 a.m. to midnight on weekdays, and until 1 a.m. on the weekends.
McGuire Moorman took over Wahoo's Fish Tacos' prime corner spot on South Congress and East Annie Street for its seventh restaurant. Originally, this address was pegged to become La Barbecue's forever home last year, but those plans fell through.
Next up for the group are the food and beverage programs at the forthcoming Austin Proper hotel and apartment development in downtown, expected to open next year. There’s also a cookbook in the works for Vietnamese-inspired Elizabeth Street Cafe, publishing this fall.
McGuire's last restaurant opening was the stylish Josephine House and the following takeover of Jeffrey's in 2013. The group also oversees June’s nearby neighbor Perla’s, Clark’s Oyster Bar, and Lamberts.
