With “gastropubs” becoming ever more popular in American hotels, it comes as no surprise that chef Tom Colicchio's now defunct Craft restaurant in Dallas is to be replaced by Cook Hall, a gastropub inside the W. Dallas Victory. Despite the radically different style and theme, the menu will still feature exquisite cuisine at a reasonable price.

The W Dallas Victory this week opened a new restaurant that replaces celebrity chef Tom Colicchio's closed Craft, the Dallas Observer tells us.

The hotel opened Cook Hall, which the Observer says is positioned as a modern "American gastropub."

Gastropubs becoming popular in hotels

The "gastropub" concept is becoming increasingly popular in hotels these days. They have an informal feel and a price point that's popular in this post-recession world. Hotel Check-In recently broke the news that Hilton Worldwide has unveiled a gastropub style concept for some of its Doubletree by Hilton hotels. The Doubletree hotel in downtown Tulsa has one under construction right now.
