The popular and acclaimed restaurant Carte Blanche, owned by husband-wife duo Amy and Casey LaRue, has closed its doors, according to a report by CultureMap Dallas.

“According to a note from the couple, they received an offer for the location and decided it was the wisest course to accept the offer and close up shop.

“‘We have been considering what to do with this space for quite some time. While our dinner service is great, it struggles in this area, as most people don’t come to Greenville for a fancy dinner,’ their post said.

“No other establishment in Dallas has earned more local and international acclaim in recent years than Carte Blanche. They were the first stand-alone restaurant to achieve Forbes Five-Star in Texas for two years in a row, in 2022 and again in 2023 — and were also the only Dallas restaurant to earn the prestigious 5-diamond award from AAA.

“The Five Diamond ranking put Carte Blanche — and Dallas — in the same field as nationally renowned restaurants such as Le Bernardin, Jean-Georges Restaurant, Per Se, The French Laundry, Joel Robuchon in Las Vegas, and Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace.

“They were also nominated for multiple Tastemaker Awards including Best RestaurantBest Chef, and Best Pastry Chef.

“Awards sound nice, but anyone who partook of their exquisite multi-course tastings knows that the awards were well deserved, with one impeccable bite after another, delivered by a doting staff.

“Their bakery, overseen by Amy, an accomplished pastry chef, was putting out pastries on a level that exceeded anything in Dallas: the best croissants, handmade doughnuts from scratch, tarts, and Danish in all kinds of flavors, both savory and sweet.”
