Big-deal chef Gavin Kaysen will open a restaurant in Minneapolis in late 2014. Called Merchant, it will be housed across the street from Bachelor Farmer at 211 N. First Street. Look for garage doors, a patio, and a 98-foot skylight in the space, a one-time horse stable.
Kaysen, who left New York City's Cafe Boulud to open the restaurant, will be joined by general manager Bill Summerville, sommelier and partner at La Belle Vie. The restaurant hopes to open in November.
