Lark on the Park confirms it will shutter this Sunday, December 2


A few weeks ago, we were tipped off that the owners of the Uptown Dallas restaurant Lark on the Park were willing to vacate the space if another interested restaurateur wanted to take it over. A spokesperson for Lark on the Park was unable to comment, but word comes today that Lark on the Park is indeed shattering. Sunday, December 2, will be the restaurant’s final day. (We hear another restaurant adjacent to Klyde Warren Park is also shopping for a new tenant.)

Here’s the message we received from Lark on the Park:

This Sunday will be our last day to serve Dallas, and we hope you will come help us deplete our inventory! Yes, we want to sell as much as possible, so great deals will be afforded while supplies last to all of the friends we’ve made over the past nearly six years.  Expect the liquor and wine to flow!

When we signed our lease, nobody knew what to expect from Park visitors. We think now, with the maturing of the downtown residential population, that we need to afford a more comfortable and approachable product that better serves the neighborhood, for those that both work and live there.

With the changing climate in chef driven concepts, Keith, Larry and I have decided to take a pause

to work on a new idea for this location.

It is an unfortunate time to be closing right before the holidays, and we will be working hard to offer many of our loyal Lark employees placement at our other concepts where there is room.

I am in development with an important Dallas dining talent that has impressed me immensely over the past three or four years. I think together we will build a new concept that will strike the proper balance of work and play at this significant central downtown address. If all goes smoothly, we should be open by May.

Thanks again for all of your patronage and loyalty,

Shannon Wynne
