Spoon & Stable's Gavin Kaysen announces 3rd Twin Cities restaurant

It will be called Demi.

Celebrated Twin Cities chef Gavin Kaysen has revealed he will open his third restaurant early next year.

Called Demi, the restaurant will offer a different experience from his two venues, Spoon & Stable in the Minneapolis North Loop and Bellecour in Wayzata, not least because it will be a tasting menu-only establishment.

It will be located at 212 N 2nd St. in the North Loop, around the corner from Spoon & Stable.

In a video announcing Demi, Kaysen says it will be "focused on Northern local cuisine, on hospitality, on warmth and on comfortable dining."

"Yet, we're going to make you feel different when you come and join us for dinner."

Kaysen, a James Beard Award winner, opened Spoon & Stable after returning home to Minnesota in 2014.

He followed that up with Bellecour in spring 2017, and will now add Demi to his growing portfolio.

"The journey we're on with Spoon & Stable and Bellecour has been joyful, exhilarating and challenging," Kaysen wrote in an email to followers, "and I continue to feel so much gratitude as I watch these restaurants help to shape the Twin Cities community and, in turn, to see the community shape them."

"Whenever we think about opening something new, we ask 'why?' and 'is it compelling?' The answers to those questions have led us to our newest baby: Demi."
