The Quad in Uptown Dallas signs on seasonal restaurant from Bishop Arts
The Quad in Uptown Dallas has scored a major restaurant get: Written by the Seasons, the healthy seasonal restaurant which opened its first location in Bishop Arts District in 2021, is joining the Quad's newly-aggregated “Restaurant Collection” of eclectic restaurants, where it will occupy a prime position adjacent to the development’s state-of-the-art office building at 2681 Howell St.
Formerly known as The Quadrangle, The Quad is being developed by commercial real estate firm Stream, and is expected to open in March 2024. The project includes a 345,425-square-foot office building with 18,500 square feet of surrounding retail.
“We're thrilled to be joining what we know will be a great lineup of diverse restaurants at The Quad," says Brenton Phillips, who owns and operates Written by the Seasons with his wife Hailey Nutt, and Dallas native Tripp Russ.
"As we continue to strategically expand and grow our brand, it is important to have an environment like The Quad, that will bring people from all over Dallas for both work and play,” Russ says.
“Our concept celebrates the ‘seasons’ of food and life, so we look forward to embarking on the journey of all The QUAD is about to become in this next season,“ Nutt says.
Written by the Seasons’ concept is meant to connect locals, travelers, the young, and the old around the dinner table. Each meal is inspired, created, and prepared to be celebrated in and through the seasons of life. Market driven dishes, seasonal ingredients, and locally raised provisions create eclectic and genuine experiences from the purest ingredients.
“Written by the Seasons is one of our favorite restaurants in Dallas, so we targeted them early on for a position at The Quad,” says The Quad's executive manager director and partner Ramsey March. “The restaurant has a devoted following in the Bishop Arts District, so we’re excited that Brenton and Hailey will be exporting their special brand of hospitality to our project in Uptown.”
The Restaurant Collection at The Quad will bring together alfresco dining, haute cuisine, and specialty cafés creating a gathering place for the next generation of Uptown Dallas residents, workers, and visitors. Two Hands, a community-focused eatery based in Australian café culture, was the first retail tenant to sign a lease in January 2023. Written by the Seasons and Two Hands are expected to open in 2024.
On the office side, three tenants have signed leases: M Financial Group recently signed a 52,000-square-foot lease. Revantage, a Blackstone Real Estate portfolio company, is taking a 32,000-square-foot space. Chicago Title Insurance Company, the largest title insurer and provider of real-estate related products, was the first office tenant and will occupy 20,000 square feet.
