You win some, you lose some: Fort Worth-based vegan restaurant chain Spiral Diner is closing its location in Dallas' Oak Cliff. But the company has more vegan eateries on the way.
According to a release, the Dallas location will close on August 14. It's at the end of its lease, which Spiral opted not to renew, stating that the building needed too much work.
The Dallas Spiral Diner had been there for 15 years, opening in February 2008. It was the second Spiral, following the original in Fort Worth. They also have a location in Denton.
But Spiral will open a new location in Arlington in 2023, at the Urban Union complex at 500 E. Front St.
This is in addition to the previously announced two vegan concepts in Fort Worth at PS1200 — a fine dining restaurant, Maiden Fine Plants & Spirits, and a donut and ice cream shop, Dreamboat Donuts and Scoops.
Owner and founder Amy McNutt called the Dallas closure bittersweet, saying, "we've been honored to feed our hungry customers for over 14 years! But, with our lease agreement expiring soon, it seemed like the right time to move on. All the years of incredible business have worn out this old building – it could no longer sustain our bustling operation!"
