Since 2015, diners have eagerly been anticipating the arrival of Bullion, Chef Bruno Davaillon’s return to the Dallas restaurant scene. Now, it looks like the restaurant is finally preparing to open its doors.

Originally expected to arrive at the end of 2016, Bullion is now planning an early fall opening, reports GuideLive. The restaurant has seen lengthy construction delays, due in large part to the fact that the entire building at 400 Record had to be gutted to make room for Bullion. In addition to the upscale spot, Davaillon will also oversee Bullion To Go, a grab-and-go spot for sandwiches and other quick fare.

As has been previously reported, Bullion will focus on French cuisine and techniques, but according to Davaillion, look for a more modern interpretation of the cuisine. "If you go to Paris right now, or France in general ... chefs do more casual and a less formal environment, but they do great food," Davaillon told GuideLive. "That is what I will try to do here: Some really great food, but still approachable.”

Bullion is currently expected to open the doors in September.

UPDATE, 6/20 4:02 p.m.: A representative for Bullion has provided Eater with renderings of the space at 400 Record. Feast your eyes on the restaurant that will soon be Bullion below:
