A new Asian fusion restaurant is opening in Uptown’s McKinney & Olive.

The other day I was driving into the McKinney & Olive parking garage when I noticed a new sign up in one of the restaurant spaces. It reads Feng Shui. Its website says that it’s coming in 2024 and it will be an “Asian fusion restaurant in Uptown Dallas, offering a unique blend of Chinese, Thai, and Japanese cuisines to cater the discerning palates of every customer.” Over the past few years, the building’s restaurant offerings have seen several changes including the openings of Mexican Sugar and Leela’s Wine Bar, and closings of Rōti: Fast-Casual Mediterranean and Malibu Poke. In 2022, the property was sold to Plano-based Granite Properties and Highwood Properties for a record $400 million.
