Client Showcase – Boulevardier, Rapscallion and Veritas Wine Room
Brooks and Bradley Anderson are East Dallas-based brother who had the good fortune to be raised by their French grandmère, Ma. They were bred with love for reading, culture, travel and an appetite for food an drink which lead to the creation of Boulevardier, Rapscallion and Veritas Wine Room.
Boulevardier is a French-Inspired, Neighborhood-Friendly Bistro located in the historic and beautiful Bishop Arts District. Offering a wide selection of House Made Bistro Fare including Specialty Oysters, Steaks, Chicken, and Fish off of our Wood Fired Grill and Modern Takes on French Bistro Classics, Boulevardier is a Fresh Breath of French-Inspired, Chef-Driven Bistro Fare. Their beverage selections include over 150 bottles of American and French wine, 20-something wines by the glass, and a large liquor selection including proprietary cocktails, vintage cognacs and Armagnacs, whiskeys, and other fine liquors from around the words and 8 draft beers.
Rapscallion is the second concept following their success with the popular “neo-bistro” Boulevardier. Rapscallion has a cohesive menu full of proprietary takes on “Old Timey” Southern classics such as Nashville Hot Chicken, Collard Greens, Cornbread, Pickled Shrimp, Pimento Cheese, Boiled Peanuts, Mac n Cheese, Hopping John, Hot Brown, and Yaka Mein.
But Rapscallion is more than “just” a creative, modern take on Old Timey Southern Cooking. Our large, customized Dry-Aging fridge sits behind the bar in full view of the dining room, and in it Father Time plus the proper temperature bless various cuts of Prime American Beef, pork, and whatever else Chef Nate fancies.
These Premium Cuts of Dry-Aged meats are then grilled over pecan on Rapscallion’s custom J&R Manufacturing Wood Grill. Rapscallion also has a custom J&R Manufacturing Wood Rotisserie, where it “rotisserizes” over pecan whichever cuts of meat Chef Nathan wants to prepare.
Veritas Wine Room
Brooks and Bradley Anderson, also co-owners of Veritas Wine Room, have constructed what is believed to be the only serious All-American Wine List in North Texas.
Traditional wines from the various wine regions of the world just didn’t seem to jive with Chef Nate’s unique perspective on the foods of the American South, so Brooks and Bradley boldly decided to celebrate the tremendous depth and surprising diversity of the World of American Wine. With over 125 selections from States as Diverse as Texas, Virginia, and New Mexico, the list features White Grapes as Diverse as Chenin Blanc, Roussanne, Trousseau Gris, and Viognier and Red Grapes as Diverse as Carignan, Dolcetto, Malbec, Mourvèdre, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Tannat, and Valdiguie.
While the Wine List is full of unexpected twists and turns, it does not forget the American Classics, including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Zinfandel.
