Korean food rooted in tradition and adapted to Michigan's bountiful produce.

Really Great Korean Food and Drink

Miss Kim, a Korean restaurant, opened in 2016 as a proud part of the Zingerman’s Community of Businesses. Chef Ji Hye Kim grew up in Seoul, South Korea and is obsessed with ancient Korean culinary texts and the finer points of fermentation. Despite rumors of its eponymous origin, the name Miss Kim was chosen for its reference to the most recognizable Korean last name and our restaurant’s female chef-owner.

Our food is rooted in Korean tradition and adapted to showcase Michigan’s bountiful produce. We work with local farmers to build a menu that shines seasonally.

We want our restaurant to be a bright, fun and easy place to be for all our guests. Our service aims to be helpful, informative, warm and enthusiastic – everything you’ve come to expect from Zingerman’s.

Our lunch menu is a throwback to our early years as a food cart. Our crisp, fresh and seasonal Asian and Asian-American plates will leave you and your taste buds sated but your mind sharp enough to tackle the next big thing!


Our dinner menu is the product of those long hours our chef spends at her desk, poring over ancient Korean cookbooks; at the market, collaborating with local farmers, and in the Miss Kim kitchen, translating and perfecting those ancient Korean recipes to showcase Michigan produce. The menu features small, medium and large plates that are meant for sharing. Do join us for dinner. Bring all your friends so you can taste everything on our menu!

REMEMBER : We take good care of our staff so there’s no need for you to tip.
