It looks like the upcoming restaurant will be a modern French Bistro that "revolves around presenting the classics of French cuisine," and the beverage program will focus on French wines and spirits. If all goes as planned, DW French will open sometime this spring.

Douglass Williams has gained much notoriety over the past few years, including being picked as one of the best new chefs in America by Food & Wine in 2020.
