One of Dallas’s favorite spots for dinner with a view is calling it quits. Five Sixty By Wolfgang Puck, perched on top of Reunion Tower, closed its doors in March as part of Dallas’s dine-in shutdown to help stem the spread of coronavirus. The restaurant helmed by the celebrity chef won’t reopen again, as Culturemap Dallas reports, citing the pandemic.

A release reads: “with the closure of Reunion Tower due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it has been decided that Five Sixty restaurant will remain closed to undergo scheduled improvements. Given this extended closure, in combination with the unknown timeline due to the Coronavirus, Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck will not reopen.”

Dining on a feast of Asian dishes like sushi, dumplings, and wok-fried snapper while looking out on the city skyline was a rite of passage for Dallas diners. Five Sixty opened in 2009 after a $23 million renovation, with sleek interiors to match the sparkling ball in the sky’s views.

Puck said in a statement: “I am very proud of the dining experience we created at Five Sixty and the talented team who have worked so hard for us over these past 11 years. We are grateful to our loyal clients and to the Dallas community for their support.”
