The Radisson Hotel is set to undergo a lot of changes when it becomes the newest Line Hotel by the Sydell Group, which runs the NoMad Hotel in New York and forthcoming one in Los Angeles, and investor Ron Burkle, as originally reported by Statesman. The parties purchased the hotel in February.
Two restaurants are slated for the third Line Hotel, which could be helmed by an all-star line-up, if the Los Angeles and impending Washington D.C. properties are any indication. Celebrity chef Roy Choi oversees the Los Angeles restaurants: vegetable-focused Commissary, coffee shop, and hotel bar Pot. Over in D.C., Maketto's Erik Bruner-Yang and Baltimore chef Spike Gjerde will open establishments, too.
There is no word on what will happen to the Radisson's current restaurant, Dine, from longtime Austin chef David Garrido. He took over the space formerly known as Chavez when it was under Shawn Cirkiel. Before that, the hotel restaurant was a TGI Friday’s.
Sydell’s NoMad Hotel in New York is home to James Beard Award-winning chef Daniel Humm’s Eater New York 38 restaurant NoMad, along with restaurateur Will Guidara. The restaurant has a Michelin star, too. The group also operates hipster hostel Freehand in Miami and Chicago, both of which are home to hot cocktail bar Broken Shaker.
Austin’s Radisson will remain open during the transformation into the Line Hotel, which will happen in stages. The final project will debut in spring 2018.
