A New Modern Eatery is Headed to Lakeview This Fall

Lakeview is the latest hot-spot for new restaurants and shops. In the past few months, a multitude of smaller locally-owned restaurants have claimed space in the ever-growing Lakeview area. Joining the neighborhood early this fall is a new eatery called Junior’s, which will take the place of the recently closed Cava. Restauranters Nick Hufft and Lon Marchand, the masterminds behind the new eatery, plan to offer “modern American fare and inventive cocktails” at Junior’s. 

The duo already operate a handful of businesses including Curbside Burgers, The Overpass Merchant (Baton Rouge), and Gail’s Fine Ice Cream (a mobile creamery). 

“We spent a lot of time looking for the perfect spot to open in New Orleans and when the space (formerly Cava) became available, we knew it was meant to be. It’s a great corner of the city and we’re looking forward to getting everyone back in.”

– Nick Hufft

The two-story restaurants will feature an upstairs bar with a traditional interior dining room downstairs. The menu, still in development, plans to offer moderately-priced snacks, small plates, sandwiches, entrees, and more. Some sample main dishes include Chicken Fried Steak and a Dry Aged Burger (a standout at the 2019 Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival). 

Junior’s on Harrison located at 789 Harrison Avenue will open early fall 2019.  The two also plan to open a brick and mortar location for Gail’s Fine Ice Cream in the neighborhood later this year. To say we are excited is an understatement! Stay tuned for more information.
