Chef behind Spoon and Stable is opening a second Twin Cities restaurant


Star chef Gavin Kaysen is opening a second restaurant in the Twin Cities.

Kaysen, who opened Spoon and Stable in Minneapolis in 2014, has signed a lease for the old Blue Point restaurant in downtown Wayzata, MSP Magazine reports.

He confirmed the news on Twitter and Instagram Monday afternoon.

It won't be another Spoon and Stable, either. MSP Magazine says it's a French restaurant that hasn't been officially named.

The Business Journal says Kaysen is working with architect Shea Design, with the hope of opening the new eatery in the first quarter of 2017.

He told the publication he always had plans to open another restaurant, but moved faster than he thought he would because he loves the Wayzata location.

In his post on Instagram, Kaysen wrote there's something "very special when you walk into an old restaurant and instantly connect with it, you can feel that many memories and family traditions have been shared here."

He added that the plan is to restore the space into a "beautiful restaurant where we can now create and curate those memories and traditions."

Kaysen moved back to Minnesota after working as the executive chef at New York City's Cafe Boulud, one of the most successful restaurant empires in the city. He's among the many chefs who have come to the Twin Cities to open restaurants in the area's budding foodie scene.

BringMeTheNews has reached out to Kaysen for more information on the new restaurant.
