The French Room, the storied restaurant at The Adolphus Hotel in downtown Dallas, only serves afternoon tea, but for a limited time it will open for dinner service once again.
The restaurant is hosting a dinner series that will span several nights in October, November and January, and feature guest chefs each month. It will be the first time the restaurant has served dinner since temporarily closing in March 2020.
“The amount of guest requests we continually receive for dinner service at The French Room is overwhelming,” said Nik Katz, general manager of food and beverage, in a written statement.
Chef Laurent Quenioux of Bistro LQ in downtown Los Angeles will be the first guest chef featured in the Be Our Guest Chef series. He will serve his five-course menu from Oct. 13 through Oct. 15 and Oct. 19 through Oct. 21.
Quenioux’s menu consists of chanterelles foie torchon, spiny lobster watercress, Dover sole with scallop salpicon, pigeon with date purée, and chocolate marjolaine with sweet corn mousse and Texas pecans.
The guest chefs and reservation dates for November and January will be announced in the coming weeks.
Tickets are $125 per person with wine pairings available for an additional fee. Reservations can be made at resy.com.
The French Room is located at 1321 Commerce Street, Dallas. adolphus.com.
