Read Bio
Stephan has spent more than 30 years working in various leadership roles in the restaurant business. Along with working for notable restaurateurs / chefs including Alain Ducasse, Daniel Boulud, and Jean Georges Vongericthen, one of Stephan’s earliest positions was as General Manager of the original Le Bilboquet in New York. In 2011, Stephan and his wife, Daniele, moved to Dallas with the purpose of opening the second location of Le Bilboquet, a NYC institution that Stephan used to work for. After successfully establishing Le Bilboquet as a Dallas mainstay, Stephan & Daniele applied their cultivated design aesthetic coupled with a hands-on approach to hospitality and opened their second restaurant, Up On Knox, in 2017.

For their third restaurant, Stephan was looking to bring the type of flawless execution he had witnessed when working for amazing Chefs and have an elevated menu coupled with an ethical meat offering, including a butcher shop. This led him to Curtis Stone and his partner & brother Luke, who had already successfully used these components at Gwen Restaurant & Butcher Shop.

In 2009, Chef Bruno Davaillon was awarded a Michelin Star as the Executive Chef of Alain Ducasse’s Mix restaurant in Las Vegas. A few months after, Chef Bruno took his star to Dallas, Texas. As a Las Vegas chef, Chef Bruno discovered he served diners only once as no one becomes a “regular” on vacation. Chef Bruno wanted to build a community of gourmands to hold him to a higher standard and motivate his culinary creativity and exploration, which is what he found in Texas. Following an exceptional six-year tenure at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, and opening Bullion, in downtown Dallas, Chef Bruno has partnered with Stephan Courseau as the Executive Chef at Up On Knox, and the Chef Partner for all concepts moving forward from the Knox Street based hospitality group.

Bruno was born and raised in the Loire Valley of France, where his extended family traditionally butchered a pig every winter and prepared their own sausages, bacon and rillons. At 16, he left home to work in his first Michelin-starred kitchen, continuing his education at the famed Restaurant Lasserre in Paris. Chef Bruno began his formal education at Lycée des Métiers Les Charmilles, graduating with a degree in the Culinary Arts in 1984.

In 2000, Chef Bruno left France for a Chef de Cuisine post at the St. Regis Hotel in Los Angeles followed by two years at BeauCoup Restaurant in San Francisco. In 2004, he was hand-picked by French culinary icon Alain Ducasse to run his Las Vegas restaurant, Mix.

In 2009, Chef Bruno took the culinary reins of the renowned Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, where he received a James Beard Nomination for Best Chef Southwest in 2012. At the helm of Bullion, the restaurant has seen prestigious recognition such as Restaurant of the Year by D Magazine in 2018. In 2019, Chef Bruno was recognized again by the James Beard Foundation as a semifinalist for Best Chef: Southwest.
