Attention New Haven, Junzi Kitchen is lifting off.

We just updated the window display at 21 Broadway to play off our upcoming opening this spring, and also the history of our building. As mentioned in a previous post, Charles Tuttle, who was a longtime grocer at 21 Broadway, also rode in the first hot air balloon seen in New Haven.

And after Yale’s Michael Morand tweeted “Excited for @junzikitchen liftoff at 21 Bway,” we knew we had found our next display theme.

Liftoff is the theme of our newest window display.

In addition to beginning construction on our space, we’re also looking for a culinary director to join our team to lead menu development. The ideal applicant has a culinary degree and experience with Chinese cuisine, but we’re keeping an open mind. If you’re interested, contact us at

On a silly note, we’ve been playing with our food. Only time will tell if we grow up.
