Next Level Brands is ready to add new flavor to Water Street Tampa with Boulon Brasserie. The newly announced restaurant from  restaurateur Jeff Gigante, real estate entrepreneur Andrew Wright and attorney/investor Joseph Guggino will open in the summer of 2022 on the ground floor of Thousand & One at 1001 Water Street.

Boulon Brasserie is described as a French bistro and will include a restaurant, café and full bar, with a menu highlighted by fresh-caught seafood and modern interpretations of classic French pastries. You will be able to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner at this new hot spot.

Boulon Brasserie is Tampa’s new French Bistro

“We all share the same vision at Next Level Brands,” Gigante wrote in a media release. “To elevate the culinary landscape of Tampa Bay by creating a collection of beautiful and authentic restaurants. Our vision of immersive dining is the perfect complement to the experiential nature of Water Street Tampa.”

It will be designed by Montreal-based architecture firm Atelier Zebulon Perron, which was also tapped to design Union New American.

These aren’t the only delicious additions to the 50-acre Water Street Tampa.

Small Giant Bar & Restaurant, a new  neighborhood bar and grill, and Wine on Water, a modern wine and liquor shop, will join Chill Bros to round out the street-level retail experience at Cora, while The Pearl, a restaurant, tavern and oyster room from  Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, the company behind Ocean Prime, will make its Tampa debut at Heron,  adjacent to GreenWise Market. Hampton Chocolate Factory, an artisan chocolate and dessert shop founded in The Hamptons, will open its flagship store at Sparkman Wharf. 

With Water Street Tampa’s Phase One completing soon, the new additions will only elevate the already diverse array of retail offerings available throughout the 56-acre development. 

More than a dozen restaurant/retail concepts coming soon to the waterfront

“Every new retailer that has signed a lease at Water Street Tampa has helped us to create a more well rounded neighborhood that we know residents, office workers, and guests will look forward to experiencing  time and again,” said Lee Schaffler, Chief Portfolio Officer for SPP. 

In addition to the three new retailers at Cora and Heron, New York import Hampton Chocolate Factory will  open this December at Sparkman Wharf. The flagship store will introduce locally made decadent chocolates  and treats, as well as a high-end line of creative desserts sourced from top pastry chefs in Tampa. In  addition to chocolate desserts and gifts, the shop will serve ice cream sandwiches, frozen hot chocolate  shakes, and frozen s’mores.
