Shea is thrilled to announce that Demi, the 20-seat gem in Minneapolis’ North Loop designed in partnership with Linda Kaysen, has been nominated for the 2020 James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant. Chef Gavin Kaysen’s third restaurant has been lauded for its attention to detail in both food and design, spectacular pairings, and dishes to die for. Congratulations to Chef Kaysen and team; we’re honored to have partnered with you!

Other Shea partners nominated include Diane Moua for Best Pastry Chef at Spoon and Stable and Jamie Malone for Best Chef: Midwest at Grand Cafe. The awards will take place in December; congratulations to all!
