The Joule Bids Adieu to Charlie Palmer and Readies for CBD Provisions and Mirth & Refuge

Categories: Food News

The Joule Hotel has been undergoing some major renovations and developments for years, and there are more changes in the works.

The most recent additions include high-end retail shops, the swank Weekend Coffee and a new lobby bar. By the end of the year, a new restaurant, CBD Provisions, will open, an organic, local and sustainable concept. There's also new cocktail lounge in the works, Mirth & Refuge. The latter two, expected to open this fall, are both concepts of Dallas-based Consilient Restaurants, whose repertoire include Hibiscus, Fireside Pies, The Porch and Victor Tangos.

Last year, the hotel announced plans to change Charlie Palmer to a steak concept under the same name, but last night they said, "Nah, nevermind," and took the sign down. Now Charlie Palmer is out at the Joule and it's just a Joule restaurant, but will have the same menu and hopefully these pastrami sandwiches Scott Reitz liked so much.

CBD Provisions and Mirth and Refuge will open, hopefully, this fall.

Ha!  My wife and I always enjoyed Charlie Palmer's, was a unique restaurant with outstanding food and very good service.  I LOUDLY panned their announcement that it was being changed into (yet another) high end steakhouse.  Surprise surprise, they finally got smart and decided not to be another "me too!" expensive steaks place.  I still lament the closing, hope this new CBD place turns out to be a suitable replacement - time will tell...
