Duro Hospitality’s The Charles Celebrates Landmark Anniversary

The Design District Darling Turns Five This May


DALLAS, TX (April 27, 2023) – Dallas’ quintessential hospitality group, Duro Hospitality, invites patrons to join them in celebrating an iconic five years in Dallas for The Charles this May 2023. As Duro’s first-ever concepted restaurant, The Charles has been a lively Italian-ish staple for discerning Dallasites since its inception in the Design District. Known for its decadent décor, including custom wallpaper with an 18th century design, marble busts and leopard-print booths, the fan favorite has been described as the love child of Fellini and Chihuly. To celebrate their anniversary, Duro Hospitality is reinstating the celebrated ‘Duro Experience’ as an exclusive offering for the month of May only. Patrons can enjoy this limited time four course experience that will consist of an array of items from their menu including house-made pastas, wood-fire grilled fish, meat, and vegetables.

This fifth anniversary Duro Experience at The Charles will feature a Chef’s choice menu showcasing classic dishes from the very beginning of The Charles, allowing patrons to enjoy some of the quintessential dishes that put The Charles on the map in the Dallas dining scene just five years ago. The Chef’s choice menu will consist of four courses with a variety of menu items per course and will be offered for $99 per person.

Three key Duro Experience dishes offered during the month of May will include:

  • The Duro Pasta, featuring Parmesan Gnocchi, Lobster Bisque, Tarragon, and Wild Mushroom

  • The Duro Beef, featuring Abar Ranch Coulotte , Marble Potatoes, Spring onions, and Shishito Salsa Verde

  • The Duro Dessert, featuring Chocolate Budino, Pistachio Biscotti, Kumquats, and Salted Cream

“It’s with generous spirit that we welcome patrons in to celebrate five years at The Charles with us, and we’re thrilled for the opportunity to treat them to this exclusive rendition of the Duro Experience,” shares Chas Martin, Co-Founding Partner at Duro Hospitality. “The Duro team is unequivocally grateful to our Dallas community and all those that have shown us so much love and support over these past five years and embraced our appreciation for beautiful things, simple and sexy dishes, good food, good company and our Italian-ish flare.”

The Charles is open Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., and is located at 1632 Market Center Blvd, Dallas, Texas 75207.
