Billy Can Can, a new bar and restaurant from restaurateur Tristan Simon, has finally announced plans to open in Victory Park.
The self-described-”saloon,” in the works since early 2017, is set to arrive at the end of June at 2386 Victory Park Lane, according to GuideLive. It’s the first of many planned new eateries for Victory Park, which has struggled for years to attract diners to the neighborhood, and hopes to revitalize an area that never really took off. It will be interesting to see how the food shakes out at Simon’s first eatery under the Rebees umbrella, especially considering that Dallas Morning News restaurant critic Leslie Brenner has been involved with the project since leaving the paper in 2017.
As far as the food is concerned, Chef Matt Ford will helm the kitchen and serve a menu of Southern fare mostly inspired by Texas. Look forward to familiar plates like Gulf snapper, venison tartare, and deviled eggs, all exhaustively tasted by Brenner before hitting the menu. As with any saloon, Billy Can Can will have plenty of cocktails, including drinks inspired by Victor Tangos, the now-shuttered Henderson Avenue restaurant founded by Simon.
Billy Can Can makes its Dallas debut on June 28.
