Dine at the Radisson will close on May 15. The shutter comes about a year after the Radisson was sold to a group that has plans to spend $75 million ton transform the property into one of their signature Line hotels.

New ownership said last year it had no immediate plans for the Starbucks and Dine, but it seems change is now afoot. The Line has plans for two restaurants at the property at Congress Avenue and East Cesar Chavez Street. While the concepts have not been announced, I’d expect notable names to set up shop, as celebrity chef Roy Choi is behind a restaurant at The Line in Los Angeles and James Beard winner Spike Gjerde is the executive chef of the restaurant at the forthcoming Line hotel in D.C.

Dine was the second restaurant at the Radisson following its renovation in 2014. Parkside Projects owner Shawn Cirkiel initially ran the restaurant as Chavez, and longtime Austin chef David Garrido took over in June 2015, following a brief stint by chef Josh Watkins. Before the sale was announced, Garrido said he had planned a name and concept change for the lakefront restaurant.

In the weeks leading up to its closure, Dine has shifted to buffet-only service for breakfast .
