Shawn Cirkiel’s latest project, Bullfight, is set to open in early August on Airport Boulevard. It’s now hiring for all positions. Employee perks include half-off meals at the other three Parkside Project places: Parkside, Olive and June, and The Backspace. Bullfight will fit 100 seats, including on the covered patio.
The menu is heavy with southern Spain influences served as traditional tapas and small plates, with an emphasis on local and quality sourcing. The bar will feature the Spanish wine list, highlighting sherry and vermouth, created by newly advanced sommelier Paul Ozbirn. There will also be cocktails and a cheese program. Both dinner and brunch will be available. The Spanish touch extends to the dessert program, run by Parkside Projects pastry chef Erica Waksmunski. She previously told Eater in June, "A lot of classic Spanish desserts are so simple, you have to find creative ways to take what it is but make it a little more interesting."
This will be Cirkiel’s fourth restaurant, after he broke off ties with Chavez, the Radisson Hotel restaurant, in February.
