The Inspiration

Fine dining isn’t dead—it’s being redefined. Young Joni represents the fine-dining experience as a place of hospitality, warmth and everyday celebration. With a menu that’s traditional with a twist, approachable but different, and an atmosphere both welcoming and sophisticated, it’s a place made for slowing down, feeling special, and savoring the extraordinary experience of living.

A 2017 James Beard Best Chef Midwest semifinalist, Chef Ann Kim’s cooking is a reflection of American food as she sees America today—a continuing conversation between cultures, underpinned by a common enjoyment of quality ingredients cooked simply and served in ways that promote sharing and a sense of fun.  The menu is wholly inspired by wood fired cooking, including a diverse array of globally influenced sharable small plates and signature wood fired pizzas.
