Hot North Loop eatery declared one of America's best new restaurants


Yet another Minneapolis eatery is getting a serious shout-out – this time, it's Spoon and Stable, which Food and Wine magazine has proclaimed one of the "most exceptional" restaurant openings of the past year.

The eatery is one of just five to get the nod from the publication, occupying third place on the new list.

As Spoon and Stable's website indicates, the menu celebrates the "seasonality of the Midwest" and local culture, but Food and Wine says chef and owner Gavin Kaysen can "cook anything" and often surprises guests with exotic entrees.

The magazine adds: "he’s a big reason the Minneapolis restaurant scene has become one of the best in the US."

2015 has been good to Spoon and Stable.

In March, it was nominated for the prestigious James Beard Award – often called the "Oscars of Food" – in two categories, including best new restaurant.

Kaysen left a prestigious job in New York to set up shop in the North Loop, a move that sent "major waves" through the "dining communities" of both cities, Eater notes.
