Jim and Alana Monaghan of Molly's at the Market (1107 Decatur St., 504-525-5169; www.mollysatthemarket.net) and J. Lloyd Miller expect to open the craft beer-focused bar Junction (3021 St. Claude Ave.; www.facebook.com/junctionnola) in August. They're previewing a menu of burgers as a pop-up at Molly's from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. July 8-12 and 15-19. The preview menu includes four burgers (a Vermont burger topped with applewood-smoked bacon, white cheddar, grilled apple and creamy maple spread; and a Carolina burger topped with fried pickles, cheddar and ranch dressing), chicken wings, fries and fried pickles.
They're completing construction and acquiring permits for Junction. It will feature 40 beers on draft including many Louisiana and regional beers and imports.
