About Ginger Hop

Step into Ginger Hop and be welcomed by a friendly face, waving punkah fans and delicious, exotic aromas. At Ginger Hop you can enjoy classic Asian cuisine along with new "East meets Northeast" creations.

Relax in the bar which exudes the best of Old World pubs and features an excellent beer selection. Not only can you enjoy craft beer in the glass, you will discover it in the food, as well! Several menu items combine beer with Asian spices to create unique, full-flavored dishes.

Linger in the beautiful dining room with its modern Indochine feel and plenty of inviting. Or see and be seen on our patio on the corner of East Hennepin and 2nd, the gateway to Northeast Minneapolis.

Reservations accepted. Private dining available.

About the owners

Ginger Hop Restaurant is owned and operated by four partners: Jake Polt, Jon Provenzano, Charles Lodge and Katey Leitch. We worked together at Chiang Mai Thai (owned by Charles and still hoppin’ after 13 years!) Our idea was to create a welcoming neighborhood restaurant that offered the exciting flavors of Thailand, Vietnam and China along with “Nordeast” dishes and classic bar food jazzed up with Asian twists. We have over 70 years of restaurant experience between us, although we admit there is still plenty to learn in this business! We are always open to suggestions and enjoy talking to our customers about what they like and what they are looking for. In fact, talking with our customers is the best part of the job! So hop on in and say hello! We look forward to serving you.
