Chef Gavin Kaysen's forthcoming Minneapolis restaurant Spoon and Stable will open on November 16. According to a press release, the restaurant will begin taking reservations online on Monday, November 10.
Kaysen — who was previously the executive chef of Café Boulud in New York City — recently changed the name of the restaurant from Merchant to Spoon and Stable, explaining that there were far too many restaurants named Merchant.
As for the food, the menu is divided into sections titled "Garden, Chilled, Grains and Pasta, Sea, Land, and Sides." Kaysen plans on "showcasing" local products and ingredients and will serve dishes like cider-glazed chicken with fennel sausage and dill-cured salmon with finger lime and roasted beets.
Diners will also be able to order the full dinner menu at the bar alongside items like duck meat loaf sliders and black truffle arancini. The restaurant will also serve Dorothy's Dinners, a rotating family-style menu inspired by Kaysen's grandmother. Spoon and Stable is Kaysen's first restaurant.
