Mar. 24—James Beard Award-winning chef Gavin Kaysen is adding two more to his list of high-profile restaurants.

Kaysen is partnering with United Properties to develop restaurants for the upcoming RBC Gateway Project in downtown Minneapolis. The project includes Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis.

The two-time James Beard Award winner and chef/owner of Spoon and Stable, Demi, and Bellecour Bakery at Cooks of Crocus Hill in Minneapolis' North Loop will develop two food concepts for the RBC Gateway Project on the corner of Washington and Hennepin avenues: a full-service restaurant and bar, as well as a cafe.

"We all feel how dramatically restaurants and the city of Minneapolis have transformed in the past year," Kaysen said in a news release. "I see this partnership with United Properties and Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis as an opportunity to uplift our community and bring two neighborhoods — the North Loop and Downtown — together. We're building this with a lot of intention and thought for what the future of hospitality looks like."

In addition to the two concepts Kaysen is developing, the property will include a third bar and restaurant on the fourth-floor pool deck run by Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis.

The restaurants are projected to debut in spring 2022.
