June BYOB is an upscale French restaurant owned and operated by husband and wife, Richard and Christina Cusack, a certified sommelier. It features traditional French cuisine with some modern influences, and includes tableside presentations.
June BYOB is named after Chef Rich’s mom, June. Chef’s first memories include cooking with his mother in their South Philadelphia home.
