A solid steel dining table with attached seats is designed to withstand anything the grandkids can throw at it. The custom-made light fixture above the breakfast room mixes rustic and industrial styles. Antique birdhouses add character to the wood-paneled walls.
In the dining space, designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens added plenty of storage and a bar area. To add more display options and complete the design in the space, a vintage barn shutter was repurposed into a shelving unit that is illuminated by a bright, broadway light fixture. Vintage metal rakes on either side of the shelves were upcycled and used as wine glass racks.
The restaurant features an original garage door that opens to allow an indoor-outdoor experience for guests seated at the walnut counter. The steel and glass door pairs with steel and wood barstools and an exposed brick wall for an ultra-industrial look.
Locally made objects — found and borrowed — tie the entire Spoon and Stable experience together with true Minnesotan collaboration. Stories from the chef’s experiences all over the world were brought into the space with local artists, friends and connections as a celebration of the chef’s Minnesota hometown. The space is filled with authentic stories made to share around the table in a true chef’s kitchen.

There's no way to look past the eye-catching art at the heart of this dining room. The piece brings color and vibrancy to an otherwise-neutral design scheme. Industrial-style barn doors and lockers bookend either side of the space; each is utilitarian and art in and of itself. Using stools for dining chairs means more seating space: It's easier to cram more of them under a table, as they tend to be smaller than traditional chairs.
The craftsmanship of the historic 1906 building, once a horse stable and now brought back to life, is the foundation for the restaurant's design. The entire design team was passionate about showcasing the building's true quality and marrying it to a restaurant with the same standard for excellence. The design palette is restrained to ensure the natural bones of the space are truly showcased above all. A simple, natural palette of whites, wood and accented textures creates understated interest and elevates the original character and materials.
Warm wood tones, muted gray-greens and charcoal exemplify the casual, comfortable vibe of this pub-inspired dining room. The custom bar includes four pro-quality taps, white subway tile backsplash and a custom shelf with under-lighting that illuminate bottles or decorative items.

The chandelier in this dining area is made of recycled cider jugs; photo murals on the walls depict the roofscapes visible through these second-story windows. Exposed ductwork keeps with the urban feel of the downstairs, and the use of rustic wood gives the space a sense of authenticity and warmth.
