The sunny dining room at Spoon and stable is filled with muted beige and white tones. In the foreground are large, circular dark wood tables with chairs and in the background an edge of the white bar is visible. On the wall is a large rough-hewn piece of wood lined with spoons. It’s a bit of an inside joke that Kaysen was known for stealing spoons whenever he dined somewhere that had utensils he admired.
