Juvia, named after a brazilian nut is Asian / Peruvian fusion on top of the beautiful 1111 Building at the end (or the beginning? lol) of Lincoln Road. The chefs are all top notch and include a Daniel Boulud prodigy, to Sunny Oh from Nobu.
We were greeted by a GM named Jaime who sat us down and were immediately blown away by the atmosphere. Gorgeous rooftop, 20-25 foot tall organic vertical garden (created by a man from Taiwan that has apparently done wall gardens for Oprah and the Queen). The music was fantastic and we caught ourselves shazaming and purchasing a few tracks throughout the evening. Indoor and outdoor seating with a majestical bar made out of amethyst. Oh and did I mention the view. It’s crazy sick – awe-struck. But I digress… We were served by Matt who took us on a culinary journey while providing great attention and top notch service.
