just/us is a collaborative effort by chefs who want to reinvigorate the restaurant industry. We showcase our own, unique talents and feature other chefs from around the Twin Cities to show us (and you) a thing or two about food. Our menu rotates and changes as we feel, so a good experience won't become a stale one.
come join /us
Seatings are at 6:00, 7:00, and 8:00
We rotate our menus frequently. This time it might be a glimpse into the world of street food, but next time it might be unique Italian flavors, or a fusion of a bunch of different styles. This allows us to continue learning, tweaking, experimenting, and of course, having fun. This means that it's very likely that every time you come in you get a brand new experience.
Our floor is handled by us cooks, too. We design the menu, the pairings, and run it all out to you. The result is an environment of fun and spontaneous energy. While we won't charge a gratuity for your meal, we do charge a service fee. The difference between a gratuity and a service charge is that we can pay out the charge to everyone who works with /us, no matter their role. Not only do we do that, but everybody also gets a share in the restaurant's profits.
NATE (THE CLUBFOOT) DOCKEN
THE DUNGEON MASTER
On a dark and cold Tuesday evening, Nate removed his sword from the Iron Viscount, breathing heavily and feeling the fatigue from a long, and near fatal struggle. Wiping the blood on a nearby banner, he could feel the power from the viscount emanate from his body, when a bright flash of light streaked from him, and into Nate's chest. After a brief moment, the power was absorbed and it was over, and Nate turned to his loyal army and spoke:
"I'm gonna go open a restaurant because I literally have no idea why this happened, who you guys are, or what this is."
Emily "Nickname pending" Hagen
WE'RE WORKING ON IT, YOU CAN'T RUSH IT
Emily has many years in the restaurant industry, and is excited to be apart of our shenanigans. She's a natural jack-of-all-trades, a hard af worker, and a good friend.
SAMANTHA (THE BRUJA) ROILAND
RESIDENT WITCH (BUT NOT THE WEIRD KIND)
Samantha learned her trade at a bunch of restaurants in Minneapolis and St. Cloud, and that has prepared her to be the house badass of awesome street food, that being her passion. She's got crazy good attention to detail, unique tastes, and will likely turn you into a frog.
Mona "Omni" Negasi
Mona has not only a long and well established career in the restaurant industry, especially in the Lowertown area, but she's an incredible visual artist as well. She's in charge of front of house operations and social media, so give her a shout out.
Lil' Ol' JESSE Chil'
Jesse's background is well-rounded, but he really loves East African cuisine, especially that of Eritrea. He's also a rad comic book artist (ask him for his books, he'd love to sell them to you), and can throw down hard in any MTG game. You might here us all scream "INFORMER!" because of him.
