The Rein­ven­tion of the French Room

Upscale Living Magazine - - Travel - By Deve San­ford Pho­to­graphs cour­tesy of the French Room

Af­ter a com­plete ren­o­va­tion, the French Room at the iconic Adol­phus Ho­tel is paving the way to a new tra­di­tion in the art of fine din­ing. Well known for its old world al­lure, the Dal­las land­mark re­opened its doors with a fresh, new aes­thetic and at­ti­tude. Eas­ily con­sid­ered to be one of the most his­toric res­tau­rants in the city, it’s a place where gen­er­a­tions of fam­i­lies have cel­e­brated spe­cial oc­ca­sions and cre­ated sig­nif­i­cant mem­o­ries.

Re­main­ing true to its orig­i­nal de­sign con­cept, deeply rooted in time­less Euro­pean ar­chi­tec­ture, the Adol­phus achieved the al­most im­pos­si­ble feat of pre­serv­ing the best of the past while pro­pel­ling into the in­evitable fu­ture. The French Room’s charm deeply rooted in his­tory and now un­der the di­rec­tion of Chef An­thony Dis­pensa is clev­erly en­tic­ing mil­len­ni­als to par­take in the rein­ven­tion of their grand­par­ent’s fine din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences.

For the first time ever, the French Room is of­fer­ing a new à la carte menu with an on­go­ing sea­sonal se­lec­tion of dishes that of­fer a modern in­ter­pre­ta­tion of clas­sic French cui­sine. Ex­pect to find ev­ery­thing from Foie Gras to Long Is­land Duck and ex­trav­a­gant sup­ple­ments, in­clud­ing an ar­ray of caviar and se­lec­tions from a cheese cart.

Whether sea­soned pa­trons will em­brace the new French Room or not, only time will tell. How­ever, one thing is for cer­tain; only one restau­rant in the city will trans­port you to France when walk­ing through its doors, and that’s the French Room.
