Restaurant to make its foray at Thanksgiving Tower in downtown Dallas
A new fast-casual restaurant concept — Gather Kitchen — plans to make its foray at the ground floor of Thanksgiving Tower in downtown Dallas early next year. The 2,400-square-foot restaurant in Dallas’ central business district will be Gather Kitchen’s first location, with plans to serve healthy comfort food with local and seasonal produce gathered by North Texas farmers. The restaurant, conceived by Nicki Hamilton and restaurateur Soraya Spencer, will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner bowls assembled in front of customers. The bowls will have proteins, vegetables and five scratch-made sauces by the duo. Gather Kitchen’s concept fits the needs of professionals in downtown Dallas that want quick, healthy menu options, said Spencer.
This will be the second restaurant concept to join Thanksgiving Tower since Dallas-based Woods Capital has spent $37 million renovating the 50-story, 1.4 million-square-foot skyscraper. In May, Woods Capital also landed an Ascension Coffee shop, which is slated to open early next year. “Gather Kitchen’s unique combination of healthy comfort food and a fast casual setting fits the bill perfectly,” said Billy Prewitt, an executive vice president at Woods Capital Management, in a statement. “They are going to be a big hit with our tenants and a great amenity for the Main Street District,” he added.
CBRE’s Greg Pierce and Ryan May represented Gather Kitchen in the deal. CBRE’s Jack Gosnell and Amy MacLaren represented the landlord, Woods Capital Management. The restaurant space will include outdoor seating and floor-to-ceiling windows. Upon opening, Gather Kitchen will operate Monday to Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m
