Forthcoming downtown spot The Line ATX Hotel revealed one of its new restaurants, P6, as well as one of its new chefs, Damien Brockway, the former executive chef of tasting menu restaurant Counter 3.Five.VII. Brockway was honored at industry magazine StarChefs Rising Stars of 2017 event last night at the Fair Market.
Not much is known about the restaurant at this point, but during the awards ceremony, it was noted that Brockway is working on a project that would highlight Texas roots. He also mentioned that he was joining a new project when he announced he was leaving Counter 3.Five.VII in October.
It looks like P6 will become the restaurant’s rooftop restaurant since that is the roof level of the hotel. There are plans for two other restaurants, according to the hotel’s brochure. One of those restaurants will be found on the ground-floor corner of Congress and East Cesar Chavez, and the other in the former Dine space. There are plans for a bar near the pool, as well as a coffee bar.
The entire hotel is set to open in spring 2018, but P6 will open in the summer.
Line Hotel's parent company, the Sydell Group, took over the Radisson Hotel on Congress Avenue and East Cesar Chavez Street in February 2016. Currently, the transformation from the former Radisson Hotel into the Line is underway, though the hotel is still open during construction. Architect Michael Hsu and designer Sean Knibb are working on the renovations.
Dine, the Radisson restaurant from chef David Garrido, closed in May. Before he took over, chef Shawn Cirkiel and Parkside Projects turned the former TGI Friday's into Chavez in 2014, but they left a year later. Garrido changed the restaurant into Dine in the summer of 2015.
On the West Coast, chef Roy Choi oversees the Line Hotel's Los Angeles restaurants, including rooftop greenhouse-inspired spot Commissary and the new Pot Pizza Joint. The upcoming Washington D.C. Line Hotel includes restaurants from chefs Erik Bruner-Yang and Spike Gjerde (pegged to open in January 2018). The Sydell Group also runs the NoMad Hotel, with locations in New York and one forthcoming for Los Angeles, as well as the Freehand in Miami and Chicago with cocktail bar Broken Shaker.
