A popular North Loop, Minneapolis restaurant has been named one of the best dining destinations to discover in the world.
In fact, it came in at No. 3 on the Best Discovery Series list for restaurants in the Midwest and Canada.
This Discovery Series aims to highlight "the next generation of dining destinations," and the restaurants on it come recommended by The Diners Club's nearly 1,000 independent experts from around the world. And although the restaurants on it haven't been featured on the annual 50 Best Restaurants list yet, they could be in the future (the 2017 version of the list comes out April 5).
The World's 50 Best touted chef Gavin Kaysen for coming back to Minnesota to explore hometown flavors, and encouraged restaurant-goers to try Dorothy's pot roast. The dish is named after Kaysen's grandmother, with the publication noting the chef takes "the homely dish to new levels."
The publication also called the restaurant's bison tartare with harissa aioli and socca chips and the scallop crudo with apple, shiso and chillies "standouts."
Kaysen opened Spoon and Stable in 2014, and just opened a second Twin Cities restaurant – Bellecour in Wayzata – this month.
The other Midwest and Canada restaurants to make the Best Discovery Series list are: Fogo Island Inn in Newfoundland; Bauhaus in Vancouver; Alo in Toronto; Momotaro in Chicago; and The Catbird Seat Restaurant in Nashville.
