Bulla Gastrobar Doral opens Tuesday, May 3, at the Shops at Downtown Doral (5335 NW 87th Ave., #C102).
The 5,500-square-foot restaurant will offer indoor and outdoor seating, as well as private dining areas for parties and functions. The space, designed by Celano Design Studio, has a loft-like setting with an open kitchen and bar as focal points. The space will also include a tapas bar. The outside area is fashioned after a mercat in Barcelona.
Doral diners will find many favorite dishes by Diego Solano, Regional Chef for Centurion Restaurant Group (Bulla's parent). However, Bulla Doral's executive chef, Miguel Rebolledo, will add some personal touches. The chef, whose resumé includes legendary El Bulli, will offer some of his favorite tapas and paellas from Spain. “Born and raised on the coast of Spain, I love mixing my traditional Spanish recipes with new and interesting techniques. At Bulla Gastrobar Doral, I’m looking forward to working with chef Diego Solano and using my passion for Spanish cuisine."
Chef Rebolledo and his team will fire up dishes on a Josper, which works as both oven and grill at the same time. Dishes from the Josper include the cubano ibérico ($19), made with pan de cristal, bellota ham, piparras, presa bellota, tetilla cheese, and mustard aioli.
