Collaborating with McCallister at The Kitchen and leading the hotel’s culinary team is Executive Chef Nick Walker. Known for his regionally inspired concepts, Chef Walker recently served as Executive Chef at CBD Provisions and Americano.
The Kitchen by Matt McCallister will showcase his talent to deliver exciting seasonally driven menus. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the space will feature an open kitchen including an exclusive communal chef’s table and wrap-around patio that will bring a lively atmosphere.
Designed by Joel Mozersky Design, Commons Club will be located inside of Virgin Hotels Dallas and will be situated on the ground level. With a dedicated street entrance, Commons Club feels like a modern social club in a playful, yet sophisticated environment. The restaurant and bar are designed to blend work and play; an all-day foodie destination where live entertainment and entrepreneurial conversations abound. Each space achieves its own sense of exclusivity with an inviting vibe. Nestled in the heart of The Kitchen at Commons Club, Joel Mozersky created an intimate dining area with tamboured wood walls, warm white oak tables, and extra cozy upholstered leather booths. The entire room, as well as a featured center booth, can be sectioned off with a velvet curtain for extra privacy and a more intimate dining experience.
A highlight of Commons Club is the oval brass and marble bar; The Bar will offer thoughtfully crafted cocktails and a curated wine and champagne selection. The Shag Room features a ‘70s glam inspiration design with a large serpentine banquette, artfully paneled smoked mirrored walls and brass sculptural lighting evoking an enjoyable setting for both travelers and locals.
