Planned Oak Cliff Restaurant “Left Bank” Changes Name: Boulevardier

<strong>Left Bank has a new name, and it hasn’t even opened yet.

A few weeks ago, we broke told you that Veritas owners Brooks and Bradley Anderson, plus Restaurant Ava chefs Nathan Tate and Randall Copeland, would be opening Left Bank, a new restaurant in the Bishop Arts District.

Seems legal wranglings got in the way of the name, so the guys have decided to keep it’s cheaper to change their name than to fight another restaurant who’s itching to scratch at other restos named Left Bank.

“(It’s now) ‘Boulevardier‘ (Boulevard with a ‘long e’ followed by a ‘long a’),”  says owner Brooks Anderson

Brooks told the Hatch,

Finding a name that nobody else uses is incredibly difficult. No clue how many hundreds of thousands of restaurants there are in this country, but just about every name has been used. Concept is still the same – simple, rustic French bistro-style food executed by two of the Dallas’s best chefs in a casual setting with a great bar.
