Chef Justin Young in Midtown



You might have seen chef Justin Young these days at Cafe 1912.

Justin, who, along with his wife, Amy, own Raven & Lilly restaurant in Oakland, opened Cafe 1912 with chef Chris Dollar 15 years ago. “I was at La Tourelle at the time,” he said. “We put everything together for it.”

Young, whose restaurant career also included working at Erling Jensen: The Restaurant, has been at Cafe 1912 helping to give the restaurant a facelift. “We’re just here to help.”

Raven & Lilly found strong roots in Fayette County and he has no plans to leave that restaurant, Young said.

But he hopes to be a “permanent fixture” at Cafe 1912.
