Her college years at New York’s Columbia University laid the foundation for her dream of bringing great pizza to Minnesota, and her years as a freelance actor fostered her value of creativity. She opened her first restaurant, Pizzeria Lola, in 2010: an artisan wood fired pizzeria that has been lauded both locally and nationally. Her second restaurant, Hello Pizza, is an East Coast inspired slice shop and frequently tops Best of Lists. Young Joni, which opened in late 2016, features an eclectic wood fire inspired menu and has been named one of the best New Restaurants in America 2017 by GQ magazine and Eater National. Ann recently received her first James Beard Award semifinalist nomination in the category of “Best Chef Midwest.”
