The inspiration

Young Joni is a restaurant located in Arts District of Northeast Minneapolis helmed by James Beard Award-winning Chef Ann Kim. The wood-fire cooking menu features a diverse array of globally influenced dishes and signature wood-fired pizzas. 

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

Tucked discreetly behind the restaurant is the back bar, serving expertly crafted cocktails and a selection of wood-fired pizzas in an intimate and cozy setting. Both sexy and rustic, the back bar has turned heads locally and nationally, recently earning a coveted spot on Esquire’s 2019 list of the Best Bars in America. 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.
