Junior’s in Mizner Park Announces it is Closed for Business

The owners of Junior’s Restaurant & Cheesecake in Mizner Park announced Wednesday that the restaurant would be closing after one-and-half years of business.

According to a sign on the building (and a post on Facebook, which has since been removed) the restaurant is “permanently closed for business.”

In a statement provided to Boca mag, Junior’s owner Alan Rosen said, “We expected the volume to be greater than we saw at this location. We enjoyed being a part of the Boca Raton community and thank all of our guests for their business. We also thank our wonderful family of coworkers.”


Known for its cheesecake, the New York City staple has been open since 1950. The business opened the Boca Raton location in November 2017, making it the first restaurant outside of he Big Apple.

Junior’s joins a numbers of restaurants that have closed in recent months in Mizner Park, including Truluck’s after 11 years and Uncle Julio’s.
