Lark on the Park, a Downtown eatery known for its views of Klyde Warren Park, is officially closing its doors.
Owner Shannon Wynne announced the news in a statement on Tuesday, citing a “changing climate in chef-driven concepts” as the reason behind the shutter. “When we signed our lease, nobody knew what to expect from Park visitors,” Wynne wrote. “We think now, with the maturing of the downtown residential population, that we need to afford a more comfortable and approachable product that better serves the neighborhood, for those that both work and live there.”
In that statement, Wynne also noted that he is currently looking to place employees who are now out of a job at one of his other restaurants, which shouldn’t be too tough considering that he owns a bounty of spots, including the Flying Saucer, Rodeo Goat, and Meddlesome Moth. He’s also reportedly planning a new restaurant for the space with an “important Dallas dining talent,” but no word yet on what’s coming next.
Lark on the Park will open for its last service on Sunday, December 2. Stay tuned for more details on its successor.
