As one of Dallas’ oldest restaurants, The French Room hasn’t seen a whole lot of change in its more than 25 years of serving up the city’s fanciest fare. That will all change this year, though, as The Adolphus Hotel plans to shutter the restaurant for major renovations.
CultureMap Dallas reports that The French Room will shutter on June 11 in order to complete major renovations on its ornate dining room. The Adolphus Hotel will also see major renovations, which means that you’ll likely see an entirely new look for the whole building when the space reopens.
The French Room has no doubt struggled in a time when fine-dining restaurants across the country have seen a major decline. Even fancier concepts are eschewing old-school rules like The French Room’s no jeans policy, so it will be interesting to see whether or not the cuisine and service are updated alongside the space.
No timeline has yet been announced for completion, but The French Room is expected to reopen “sometime later this year.”
