Peek Inside Jason Chan and B.K. Park's Juno, Opening Friday Night

[Photos: Barry Brecheisen]

Jason Chan and B.K. Park are just about back in the saddle. Juno, the collaborative Japanese restaurant in the old Merlo space, is opening on Friday. The interior and exterior aesthetics are complete, with only soft openings remaining until opening night.

The first street-side glance reveals an eye-catching bright red sign above black-framed full-glass front windows. Once inside, the red and black theme continues around the cozy space. The bar is bright red both at the foot and rear and crimson chairs sit around crimson tables. Japanese artwork is painted on walls, depicting scenes of geishas swinging ping pong paddles and sitting cross legged holding an electric guitar.

A poem on one wall starts with "do what you love." Chan and Park may be doing what they love as well, opening a restaurant in two days they hope the public will love.
