This article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune calls Minneapolis' new Young Joni a "restaurant of the future." We're proud installers of its two Le Panyol wood-fired ovens and tile hearth to which the Strib pays poetic pleasantries:
"Despite the room’s voluminous square footage, the glow (and comforting scent) of the kitchen’s two vital organs — the gleaming copper-clad pizza oven, and the sturdy tile-and-steel hearth, both fueled by red oak — are never out of sight."
GQ magazine crowns Young Joni among its Best New Restaurants in America 2017 and gives a nod to the Le Panyol oven:
"Twin Citians have already long enjoyed Kim's extraordinary pizzas at Pizzeria Lola and Hello Pizza. Young Joni, in a large industrial space crisscrossed by communal tables and highlighted by a huge copper-skinned wood-burning oven, expands the offerings to small plates: grilled mushrooms bathed in chestnut-miso butter; huge head-on prawns, painted the color of freshly fired brick with red-chile fish sauce. The pizzas are blistered and bubbly and perfect."
