Young Joni is James Beard award-winning chef Ann Kim's restaurant located in Northeast Minneapolis. The wood-fire cooking menu features a diverse array of globally influenced dishes and signature wood-fired pizzas.

Tucked discreetly behind the restaurant is the back bar, serving craft cocktails and pizzas in a cozy setting. Take a walk down the alley adjacent to Young Joni and look for the red light. When the light is on, the back bar is open.

Join us to experience Chef Kim's unique and personal cuisine in an atmosphere that is warm, welcoming and sophisticated.
