The Project

Strategically situated in the Dallas Arts District across from the Meyerson Symphony and Winspear Opera House, the elegant Flora Street Café is the 21st restaurant by well-known pioneer of Southwestern Cuisine and prestigious James Beard Award winner, Chef Stephan Pyles. Chef Pyles’ love of the arts is a focal influence in the meticulous design of the dining room with a concept of “Food as Theater” being a prevalent theme throughout.

Welcoming warm tones in the lounge are finished in metallic and wood accents to create a sexy, sleek atmosphere. The main dining room includes a breathtaking installation of deconstructed, blown glass and ghost chandeliers suspended at varying levels. At the focal point of the 5,000 square-foot restaurant is a 25″ x 10″ abstract, jewel-toned, three-dimensional silk tapestry designed by contemporary artist Tim Harding to depict dramatic theatrical curtains. One of the most powerful works in the restaurant is a mixed medium of art and music from Studio Drift in Amsterdam and is the first and only one of its kind in the United States. Enclosed above the bar and lounge, a kinetic sculpture made of silk rhythmically pulsates light as it descends and retracts during 10-minute cycles.
