Gavin Kaysen's Merchant to open near Bachelor Farmer


Gavin Kaysen — one of the nation's top young chefs — plans to open his new North Loop restaurant Merchant near the Bachelor Farmer at 211 N. 1st St.

Kaysen has left behind a job as executive chef of the acclaimed Cafe Boulud in New York City to work on the rollout of his new restaurant, which will open in the fall. 

In a recent interview, Kaysen said the menu will be "French by design and American by taste."
