It's full steam ahead on construction at Rapscallion, the new restaurant concept from the Boulevardier team that's going in next to Trader Joe's on Lowest Greenville.
Rapscallion is a joint project from Chef Nathan Tate and brothers Brooks and Bradley Anderson, attorneys who, in addition to Bishop Arts bistro Boulevardier, also own Veritas Wine Room on Henderson Avenue. "Chef/partner Nathan Tate's menu will be rooted in the culinary traditions of the South, but the food will in no way be 'traditionally' Southern," reads a statement sent over by Brooks Anderson. Boulevardier bar manager Eddie Eakin will head up the cocktail program.
Rapscallion will seat 76 inside and another 30 on a patio that faces Greenville Avenue. An open floorplan will be outfitted in wood and brick, and the wall facing Greenville Avenue will feature a very large piece of glass offering views of the patio and the street beyond. An open kitchen will showcase a wood-burning J&R Grill and a wood-burning J&R rotisserie for cooking all the proteins.
Rapscallion is slated to open in mid-May if all goes according to plan.
