Chef Gavin Kaysen has officially announced his new restaurant and bar concept for the Four Seasons Hotel within RBC Gateway.

Mara will open in June, along with the Four Seasons Hotel and Gavinโ€™s lobby cafรฉ concept (more details to come). The restaurant will feature a Mediterranean-inspired menu that will include vibrant and evocative dishes that are influenced by the heritage and cuisines of the region.

Mara will cover over 5,600 square feet of space along Nicollet Mall on the ground floor of RBC Gateway. The space will include a 124-seat main dining room, a private dining space, an open kitchen with two adjacent chefโ€™s tables, a cocktail room and even a temperature-controlled chocolate room. The menu will include a wide array of fish, steak, and chicken dishes along with spreads and dips.

The restaurant and bar were inspired by Gavinโ€™s time abroad in Switzerland, Southern France and the Mediterranean Sea with the word โ€œMaraโ€ translating to โ€œbeautifulโ€ in Greek. The kitchen at Mara will be led by Chef Thony Yang who previously was a Sous Chef at Gavinโ€™s restaurant Demi in the North Loop while the cocktail bar and it's menu will be led by Adam Witherspoon and sommelier Paul Hennessy. Chef Eddy Dehin, who will be the Four Seasonโ€™s Executive Pastry Chef, will also be part of the team focusing on the creation of Maraโ€™s desserts.

Mara is anticipated to open in early June at 250 Nicollet Mall.
