There is nothing quite like the frenetic and fleeting seasonality of the upper Midwest to inspire a soulful cook. For Chef Gavin Kaysen, an old soul at heart, this idea beckoned him back home to Minneapolis to open Spoon and Stable restaurant.
The gist: This modern American hotspot inside a renovated horse stable earned chef Gavin Kaysen a James Beard Award for top chef in the Midwest so you know it’s good.
The food: The restaurant’s seasonal menu changes often and features dishes like halibut, duck, pork, heritage grain pasta, and steak.
The cost: Entrees range from $16 - $38.
How to order: You can dine indoors or on the patio and also order to-go through Toast.
