“Amazing Pizza”
Review of Young Joni

Young Joni
Ranked #64 of 1,981 Restaurants in Minneapolis
Certificate of Excellence
Description: 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 and 2018 Best Chef Midwest nominee, 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.

Since moving to Minneapolis, I had not found that yummy pizza that I LOVED! Young Joni’s filled that perfectly. I can see why it’s so hard to get in. So we made another reservation while we were finishing up our meal. It is most definitely worth the wait and anticipation for our next amazing g pizza.

I have dined here 3 times in the past 3 months and each time it has been amazing! The Japanese sweet potato is the stuff of dreams - sweet, creamy with a spicy kick. Ask about the fish of the day - cooked whole, filleted at the table and always accompanied by an incredible side sauce. Favorite pizzas include the One Potato, Two and the Basque. The chicken wings are out of this world! Not sure what they do to them, but OMG. Service is just what you want - friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Young Joni is my new favorite restaurant!

We are big fans of Pizzeria Lola so have been wanting to try Young Joni fir awhile. We tried making reservations for a few months with no luck so decided to go on the early side on a Saturday. Started with the roasted cauliflower (delicious) and tried two pizzas (very delicious). We want to go back for the ice cream after the people at the table next to us recommended it. Definitely will go back!

I kept hearing about young Joni's you have to go to Young Joni's the reviews are great is wonderful.

So finally went!

The build-out is extremely compelling very fun restaurant just to sit in.
You would start with an extremely interesting vegetable dish wood fire baked. Then you would either move to the one outstanding entree at they might have it could be a very interesting piece of meat( wood fired again of course) or you go to pizza.

Pizza is the number one dish. Pizza with a cracker crust, ultra fresh extremely interesting pizza topping choices. If you include each having an extremely wonderful vegetable dish then split a pizza and have a dessert you will be extremely happy with Young Joni.
