A Culinary Odyssey: Restaurants that Resonates

Duro Hospitality’s robust foray into the culinary scene has been nothing short of extraordinary. Their restaurants, bars, and hotel, each a gem in its own right, weave a tapestry of elevated taste that reflects the diversity and richness of Dallas itself.

The Charles

At the heart of Duro Hospitality’s culinary empire is The Charles,  a restaurant that has elevated the art of accessibly luxe cuisine to new heights. Nestled in the heart of Dallas’ Design District, it is an epicurean paradise, where creativity meets culinary craftsmanship. From the perfectly balanced menu that will appeal to almost everyone, each dish is a testament to their dedication to quality and precision.

We love that Sister, a culinary masterpiece by the Duro team, finds its home within the walls of the iconic Grape, which was a Dallas institution for over four decades. Rooted in the success of The Charles, Sister brings a relaxed and comfortable neighborhood dining experience to East Dallas. Italian-influenced, the menu features wood-fired meats and fish, artisan pasta, and light Mediterranean cuisine. Conveniently located on Lower Greenville, Sister is the embodiment of approachable sophistication, offering a haven for the community and visitors alike. Plus, it tends to be a scene, so you’ll know plenty of people there.

Café Duro

Café Duro serves as Greenville Avenue’s classic European-style street café with a traditional Italian-ish walk-up espresso counter and standing bar tops. Whether you are seeking house-made pastries, coffee, or a bottle of wine, Café Duro offers a variety of specialty dishes available to go or to enjoy in the café. Plus, the in-house Duro Wine Club also offers a concierge-style neighborhood wine experience featuring artisanal wines through tastings, release parties, and other unique offerings. 

Crafting Experiences: A Bar that Beckons

Duro Hospitality doesn’t just stop at serving delectable meals; they’ve also mastered the art of mixology, offering patrons a chance to savor handcrafted cocktails in unique, atmospherically rich settings.

Mister Charles

For those seeking a dynamic cocktail adventure, Mister Charles, the place to be right this very minute, takes patrons on a spirits journey around the world without leaving their seats. This restaurant seamlessly blends international cocktail favorites, and the chic design mirrors the cosmopolitan spirit of Dallas itself.
