Ann Ahmed Owner / Executive Chef

Chef Ann Ahmed grew up in the kitchen with her mom and grandmother. Ann knew she wanted to own a restaurant ever since she was 14 years old. In 2005, her dream came true - Ann opened Lemon Grass Thai Cuisine in Brooklyn Park. Serving colorful and original dishes inspired by her travels around the world, Ann quickly gained a reputation for her unique Laotian spin on traditional Thai food.

Fast forward to 2018. After 13 years, Lemon Grass has grown from a tiny restaurant with just 10 tables to a larger restaurant with a sushi bar that seats 100. Now, Ann is ready for a new challenge. Lat14 Asian Eatery will allow Ann to experiment with unique flavor profiles without limitations and will give Minnesotans the opportunity to journey to different countries and cultures by experiencing their distinct flavors.
