It was announced way back in the summer of 2012 that Charlie Palmer at the Joule Hotel downtown would undergo renovations to become Charlie Palmer Steak, but nothing ever seemed to come of that announcement; now, word comes from Morning News critic Leslie Brenner that Palmer is packing up and departing the Joule altogether.
The restaurant will officially close on October 9 and will be replaced by a fresh concept from Consilient (aka Tristan Simon and Tim Headington, the team behind a whole host of other Dallas hot spots including Hibiscus and Victor Tangos). UPDATE: Charlie Palmer will actually be closing tonight, September 17. According to Leslie Brenner, "It will reopen tomorrow as the Joule Restaurant, with the same menu in place."
Consilient, of course, has already been hard at work on opening another restaurant at the Joule called CBD Provisions — set to open sometime very soon — as well as a "subterranean drinking establishment" called Mirth & Refuge. It's all part of a long-term mega-construction job at the downtown boutique hotel that has also seen the additions of Weekend Coffee and TenOverSix and Traffic LA boutiques.
