He then went on to play an integral role in opening some of the premier restaurants in Minneapolis- Solera, the new La Belle Vie, Sea Change and Il Gatto.

From there Jim followed his desire to travel and work overseas, Jim spent two months in Scandinavia with six weeks in Copenhagen at the world renown, Noma. Christiansen returned to the Twin Cities in early 2012, he was then asked to head the much anticipated Union Restaurant on Hennepin Ave in Minneapolis.
