The Adolphus Hotel Refreshes with City Hall Bistro
Renovation puts tradition into transition.
The Adolphus Hotel in Dallas is one of the country’s lodging landmarks. Built in 1912 by Adolphus Busch of Anheuser-Busch fame, the property has maintained its luxury reputation for more than 100 years, with the storied French Room restaurant setting the standard for fine dining in the region for decades.
Last year though, the hotel underwent a major renovation for the first time since the 1980s to upgrade and update its facilities, including the restaurants, bars, and meeting/event spaces. While the lofty French Room was polished, the hotel’s three-meal venue (formerly known as The Bistro) was demolished and reimagined as the vibrant City Hall Bistro. For this pictorial, we talked to F&B Director Amanda McFarland, Executive Chef Jeramie Robison, and Designer Joslyn Taylor of Dallas-based SWOON – the Studio, for details on this new Dallas dining destination.
