If the walls could talk, they would tell you what they’ve tasted, smelled, and heard over the last three decades from the kitchens and diners at the Dallas landmark, S&D Oyster Company. They might also tell you they’re ready to show off their facelift The two story addition to S&D Oyster Company is slated to open in early 2015.
“Renovating a building as old and iconic as this has been a challenge,” said architect William S. Briggs who has been working on the project. “It was imperative to maintain the structure’s historical character and New Orleans French Quarter feel, while updating it for a modern dining experience.” Briggs brought an in-depth understanding of design and Dallas's unique sensibilities to the project due to his decades of experience designing homes and structures in North Texas. Carrell Partners & Yost also worked on the renovation.
Located at 2701 McKinney Avenue in Uptown, S&D Oyster Company has remained open during the entire two year construction project. The addition, which doubles the existing square footage of the restaurant, will also include a full bar, two wood burning fireplaces, two full service kitchens, as well as courtyard for outdoor dining.
