Written by the Seasons, which opened its first location in Bishop Arts District in 2021, has agreed to join The QUAD’s premier “Restaurant Collection” of eclectic restaurants, located at 2681 Howell Street. The restaurant will occupy a prime position adjacent to the development’s state-of-the-art office building.
The QUAD is being developed by Stream, a national commercial real estate firm offering an integrated platform of services, 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,” said 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,” said Russ. “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,“ added Nutt.
RUE Realty’s Managing Partner Jeremy Zidell and Katherine Carlton represented both the landlord and the tenant in the transaction. The QUAD’s development team is led by Executive Manager Director and Partner Ramsey March, and consists of Senior Director Brad Dornak, Senior Director Jerry Mays, and Director Blake Bell and the office leasing is led by Senior Vice President Ryan Evanich and Vice President Marissa Parkin.
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,” March said. “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. Earlier this year, Two Hands, a community-focused eatery based in Australian cafés culture, was the first retail tenant to sign a lease in The QUAD’s retail portion. Written by the Seasons and Two Hands are expected to open in 2024.
On the office side, three major tenants have signed leases at The QUAD for a total of 104,000 square feet. M Financial Group recently signed a 52,000-square-foot lease. Revantage, a Blackstone Real Estate portfolio company, agreed to take 32,000 square feet, and Chicago Title Insurance Company, the largest title insurer and provider of real-estate related products, was the first office tenant to commit to the project, agreeing to occupy 20,000 square feet.
