Jim Christiansen



Jim Christiansen grew up in Minnesota and has spent most of his life working in the local restaurant community. During an internship with Tim McKee at La Belle Vie in Stillwater, Jim fell in love with cooking. He went on to work at various McKee restaurants, including Solera, La Belle Vie, Sea Change with Erik Anderson, and the former, critically acclaimed Il Gatto. In winter 2012, Jim had a short internship at the renowned Noma in Copenhagen, where learning to question the current state of food helped open his mind to new ideas about cooking. Heyday is his first solo restaurant. 


Jim’s focus is on cuisine that is light, seasonal, and delicious. His time spent learning the importance of wild food at Noma has informed the food at Heyday, and connecting diners with Minnesota’s harvest is foremost in his mind when cooking. Since Heyday opened in April 2014, Jim Christiansen has been recognized as a Food & Wine Best New Chef (2015) and a James Beard nominee as Best Chef Midwest (2015).
