Centurion Restaurant Group expanded Coral Gables’ notable restaurant Bulla Gastrobar to Doral. Based on the critical acclaim and success of the original Bulla Gastrobar in Coral Gables and the demand for refined cuisine in the area, the brand expands west to the newly developed Downtown Doral area.
Bulla, which is slang for chatter and what people are talking about, is devoted to delight you by serving your favorite Spanish dishes such as Patatas Bravas, Huevos Bulla, Buñuelos de Bacalao, and other tapas, as well as tantalizing daily specials from our kitchen to be shared amongst friends.
“Bulla Gastrobar has become a staple in Coral Gables and, with our new location, we’re bringing the same energy, food quality, and bar program to the emerging Downtown Doral area. Chef Rebolledo is an important addition to our team and brings a wealth of culinary experience to the Bulla family. We’re excited to continue building the brand throughout South Florida and the U.S.,” says Juan Carlos Marchan, Vice President of Centurion Restaurant Group.
Designed by celebrated design firm Celano Design Studio, Bulla Doral will project the feel of an urban loft with stylish, warm and welcoming décor all inspired by modern European design mostly taken from the traditional tapas bar and cervezerias of Barcelona. Upon arrival, guests will see outdoor seating blended with a lively interior playing off a Barcelona marketplace –polished, sophisticated, warm and inviting. The main dining room will offer traditional seating accented by deep blue, rich leather, and dark and light woods. A raw bar and tapas bar will be highlighted by an open expo kitchen and a large bar for a place to gather, similar to the Coral Gables location.
Under the culinary direction of El Bulli alum Chef Miguel Rebolledo, the menu will highlight Bulla Coral Gables classics with Chef Rebolledo’s added touches. Executive Chef Rebolledo will bring his extensive culinary experience, talents and unending love for Spain to the Doral location.
