Bulla Gastrobar, the newest addition to Legacy West’s growing array of dining options, is just about ready to open its doors in Plano.

The restaurant at 6007 Legacy Drive is an export from Florida, and part of a growing chain that includes five locations in Florida and Georgia. The restaurant is known for its Spanish-influenced menu of small plates, ranging from cured meats and cheeses to ceviche, fried calamari, and ham croquettes served with fig jelly. For diners with heartier appetites, a seafood-packed paella, burger (of course) and cumin-marinated skirt steak will be on offer.

Bulla Gastrobar’s bright interiors also take influence from Spain, evidenced by its rich blue tiles and the vivid photos of flamenco dancers that adorn the walls. A massive bar, topped in Carrera marble, awaits for drinkers and offers enough room to enjoy snacks alongside a cocktail (or three). In the back of the space, a large booth offers both seating for large groups and a peek inside the restaurant’s open kitchen.

Bulla Gastrobar hasn’t announced its official opening date, but the restaurant is expected to debut next week. Before it arrives, take a peek inside the space courtesy of Eater photographer Melissa Hennings.
