Jujube is a modern asian fusion restaurant and memorable dining experience in Chapel Hill, NC. Our cuisine is rooted in the flavors of China and Vietnam, distilled and whimsically refined with western sensibilities. Part of creating an inspired dining experience is getting out of the way and allowing tradition and the beauty of nature to show through, and part of it is putting your individual stamp on each dish. Jujube does both by weaving classic Asian dishes along with one-of-a-kind creations born from our hearts into one, eclectic menu.

Upcoming Events

Seafood on the Patio: Party with the Queen of Wines

I’ve been reminded by many of you that we’re long overdue for a wine dinner.  And some, in particular, have requested we do something like the Chablis Clambake we did a few years back.  So, in the interest of pleasing as many of you as possible, as well as feature a new local importer, we’re taking it back out to the patio for a party.

Unlike our usual format, this is not a course-by-course affair, but rather an array of really tasty seafood dishes with some unique French whites that we feel will pair well across the board.  After all, these are delicious and versatile wines, some of which you may not be familiar with, so why not show off how well they pair with a variety of foods?

The culinary theme for the dinner will be France-meets-Asia-meets-low country boil, taking Vietnamese dishes (which are, by origin, an Asian-French fusion), adding a few more riffs, and coming up with something really fun. Starting with an Asian twist on the classic Provencal sandwich Pain Bagnat and finishing with a delicious, curry-spiced seafood boil.

So, a bit about Laure and her company Queen of Wines.  She is rather new to the scene here and focuses on family-owned French wineries, many of whom she has gone back with for many years.  Her palate is impeccable and she takes the job of educating the customer very seriously.  Even her back labels include a well-done and illustrative description of what style of wine it is, and what it goes best with.  I’m sure she’ll be a wonderful hostess for this event.
