DALLAS — The top of Reunion Tower has a new restaurant.
Crown Block, a Las Vegas-based steak and seafood restaurant, plans to open in the spring, Reunion Tower officials announced Friday.
This new restaurant won't, however, spin in 360 degrees as the venture's previously in the space did -- not on the 18th floor hosting the main Crown Block facility, anyway. (The 17th floor, which is available for private events, can still rotate upon the request of those who book it.)
Regardless, Crown Block fills a void in terms of the tower's 360-degree-view restaurant offerings. Wolfgang Puck's Five Sixty restaurant shut down at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, then ultimately made the closure permanent.
Crown Block is owned by husband-wife business partners, Chef Kim Canteenwalla and Elizabeth Blau. The restaurateurs are previous James Beard Award nominees. At Crown Block, they'll offer dinner nightly and brunch on the weekends.
“Kim and I discovered our love of Dallas and instantly felt welcome with the world-famous Texas hospitality," Blau says. “We are excited to bring our longstanding philosophy drawing from the culture, landscape, and culinary traditions of the region to partner with the Hunt family on this exciting new endeavor for the city.”
The Crown Block event space on the 17th floor will have reception space available for up to 175 seated guests or 250 standing guests.
