RiNo is getting another Texas transplant, BusinessDen reported. Lustre Pearl will open at 1315 26th Street, next to First Draft, in August. Owners Chris Parker and Bridget Dunlap, a husband-and-wife pair that owns seven Texas restaurants, have picked the Mile High City as their first foray out-of-state. Eateries ranging from casual and cultish Torchy’s Tacos to highly acclaimed Uchi have also picked Denver as their out-of-state expansion destination.
Lustre Pearl, born in Austin and operates in two locations, will launch in a 3,300-square-foot space and that includes a 1,000-square-foot patio. "We like areas that are very walkable and have a little art twist to them," Parker said to BusinessDen. "You’ve got anything from artist types to young professionals to more established corporate people. It all meshed together with what we are looking for."
There will be cocktails and some food, an eclectic design, and a small stage where bands will be invited to perform live.
