3. Bullion, DallasWith Bullion, his new Dallas restaurant, Michelin-starred chef Bruno Davaillon wants to show that French food doesn’t have to be stuffy, and hopes to create an “elevated yet approachable atmosphere” where he can share his passion for all things French. Bullion takes its name from the Latin for “to boil,” and obviously references gold bullion given its gold-tiled exterior and gold-themed interior by London- and New York-based interior designer Martin Brudnizki. Dishes on the launch menu include white fish soufflé with dumpling and lobster sauce, and a modern take on duck à l’orange, served with radish, endive, and an orange marmalade. In the kitchen, Davaillon has worked with Dallas Urban Farmers to install an indoor vertical farm, allowing Bullion to be the first Dallas restaurant to grow plants from seedlings on site.
