The restaurant landscape in Austin is constantly changing. Why not start 2017 off with some new dining experiences at one of these new establishments?
Tillery is a brand spanking new Mediterranean-inspired restaurant on the banks of the Colorado River. Located on East Cesar Chavez at Tillery Street, Tillery has a beautiful modern-designed dining area full of light and can seat 90 people. There is also a huge outdoor area if you want to dine with a view. Save room for dessert, which includes a house-made ice cream flight.
Just across the street from Tillery, Grizzeldas is another recent addition to the Austin restaurant scene. Created by the same team that opened Jacoby’s, the restaurant will serve Tex Mex featuring meat from the Jacoby family ranch in Melvin. In addition to Tex Mex specialties like enchiladas and queso, there are housemade cocktails focused on tequila and mescal.
Old Thousand is another new addition to the eastside, this time on East 11th. The restaurant aims to serve Chinese-American food for dine-in and take-out and was started by veterans from Uchi, Hopdoddy, Moonshine Patio Bar and Grill, and St. Philip. Their goal is to make sure you can get great Chinese food late at night with cocktails specifically designed to pair well with Chinese food.
Moving away from the Eastside and to North Austin, Brentwood Social House is located on Koenig Lane near Burnet Road and is a cafe serving quiches, scones, and other European-style baked goods. The owners aim to be a neighborhood destination and have space available for private events, a large outdoor garden, and a cozy atmosphere.
Eberly is located on South Lamar near Barton Springs and features a lovingly restored bar from the Cedar Tavern in Greenwich Village in New York City. Eberly focuses on Contemporary American Cuisine, house made cocktails, craft draft beers, and wine.
Further west in Spicewood, Pizzeria Sorelina is opening on the grounds of Apis Restaurant and Aviary. Everything will be made in-house at Pizzeria Sorellina, including cheese, cured meats, and breads. They will also have beer, wine, and draft cocktails.
