Dine, the Radisson Hotel restaurant from chef David Garrido in downtown Austin, is shutting down. The hotel itself is set to change when it becomes the next Line Hotel after its purchase by the Sydell Group last spring. The restaurant’s last day will be held on Monday, May 15, as reported by Statesman.
The shutter teases potential exciting changes to come for Austin’s new Line Hotel, if the other locations are any indicated. The Line in Los Angeles’s Koreatown is anchored by chef Roy Choi, and in Washington D.C., there are restaurants run by chefs Erik Bruner-Yang and Spike Gjerde. The group also oversees the NoMad Hotel in New York, Freehand in Miami and Chicago (which includes lauded cocktail bar Broken Shaker). The group offered no comment as to what the future will entail as of now.
The Radisson Hotel restaurant has gone through many iterations and owners through the years. It started out as a TGI Friday’s. Then, in February 2014, chef Shawn Cirkiel and Parkside Projects transformed the space into his restaurant Chavez, but he parted ways with the hotel a year later. Taking the reigns was former The Carillon chef Josh Watkins who aimed to rename and reconceptualize the restaurant, but that never happened since he left a month into the job. Then Garrido took over the restaurant in June 2015. He changed the name to Dine and added his signature dishes.
The Line Hotel is set to make its Austin debut in spring 2018.
