Ever since departing The Mansion Restaurant, we’ve all been waiting with bated breath for Chef Bruno Davaillon’s concept Bullion to debut. There’s still a while to wait, but today brings more details on what the restaurant is going to look like.

This afternoon, Davaillon provided a quick glimpse into what Bullion is going to look like, both aesthetically and in terms of food. As far as the menu is concerned, Davaillon will focus on his version of “contemporary French cooking,” including whole roasted birds, escargots beignets, salmon rillettes, and braised rabbit torte.

As for Bullion’s look, expect for it to be as luxe as its namesake. Designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, the restaurant will boast a luxe, mid-century vibe. Diners will enter the restaurant via a staircase that ascends to a lounge area decorated in hues of blue and gold and dark wood floors. A 98-seat dining room will offer a variety of table configurations, perhaps for communal dining or large groups.

The restaurant was originally on track to debut in “late 2016,” but it now appears that Bullion will open in April 2017 as one of the spring’s most highly-anticipated new arrivals.
