Chef Gavin Kaysen will create 2 restaurants at new Four Seasons Hotel in Minneapolis

The restaurants will debut in 2022, when the building opens.

Acclaimed chef and restauranteur Gavin Kaysen will develop a restaurant and cafe at the new Four Seasons Hotel that's being built in downtown Minneapolis.

Kaysen has teamed up with the ritzy hotel chain and United Properties to develop the "dining experience" at the RBC Gateway Project, which includes the new Four Seasons Hotel, developer United Properties said in a news release Wednesday.

"We all feel how dramatically restaurants and the city of Minneapolis have transformed in the past year," Kaysen said in the release. "I see this partnership with United Properties and Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis as an opportunity to uplift our community and bring two neighborhoods — the North Loop and Downtown — together. We're building this with a lot of intention and thought for what the future of hospitality looks like."

Kaysen, the James Beard Award-winning chef behind Spoon and Stable, Demi and Bellecour, will oversee the creation of a full-service restaurant and bar and a cafe, which are expected to open in the spring of 2022. He will lead concept development for all aspects of the project, including food, wine ambiance and decor. 

"We wanted to form a partnership with someone very special, and Gavin was our first choice right from the start," Rick McKelvey, senior VP at United Properties, said in the release. "We are confident that when Gavin's restaurant opens in a little over a year from now, our community will embrace his vision for a wonderful, world-class restaurant and café."

Details about the restaurant concepts will be shared "in the months ahead," including the name, design, beverage and culinary concepts, the release said. 

There will also be a third bar and restaurant at the RBC Gateway Project, located on the fourth-floor pool deck. It will be managed by the Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis.

When the RBC Gateway Project is complete in 2022, it will feature a 37-story mixed-use tower that houses the 5-star Four Seasons Hotel, office space, 33 private residences, underground parking, a public plaza, street-level retail, and a skyway to Minneapolis Central Library.
