Renowned Minneapolis chef Gavin Kaysen offers "Thanksgiving to-go"

The menu includes group-size dinners, a la carte dishes and desserts

Local chef Gavin Kaysen, of national food media fame, has announced a new special: Thanksgiving to-go. 

With the current national health advice being to limit your travel and contact with loved ones at Thanksgiving, the chef behind Spoon & Stable is offering Twin Cities diners a luxury option that will also provide a welcome boost to his business at a difficult time for the restaurant industry.

Prices for a la carte menu items range from $6 (for, well, bread rolls) to an eye-watering $600 for a Thanksgiving meal for 12-16 people ... or four people for a week.

Menu items include a roasted turkey breast, confit turkey leg and crispy wing, stuffing, mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts with apple and bacon, cranberry sauce and house rolls.

For those looking for accompaniments, a la carte sides range from $6 to $55, including a Minnesota favorite – the green bean casserole.

See the full menu here.

If you're interested, orders can be placed until Nov. 12. Then, customers may pick-up their dinners the day before Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Kaysen's James Beard Award-winning restaurant, Spoon & Stable in the Minneapolis North Loop.

After opening Spoon & Stable, Kaysen opened Bellecour in Wayzata, which closed in the ongoing economic and health crisis, but has since found a home as a bakery in the North Loop.

Kaysen has also been operating his newest restaurant, Demi, since 2019
