New Austin Restaurant Openings

Virginia Wood at Austin Chronicle provides us with new Austin dining choices that have recently opened. Read on to find out about these restaurants new to the Austin Real Estate Market.

El Arbol (3411 Glenview, 804-4087,, a chic, multilevel, midcentury modern spot serving authentic Argentinean cuisine, South American wines, and custom cocktails. Three new eateries have just opened in the Shops at the Domain.

The 45-unit Chicago-based chain Maggiano’s Little Italy (10910 Domain Dr. #100, 501-7870, has settled into a comfortably opulent space where it offers fine dining, banquets, carry-out, and catering.

Friends from Dallas are pleased to see that the Austin debut of the popular Metro­plex chain Gloria’s Restau­rant and Bar (3309 Esperanza Crossing #100, 833-6400, has brought its brand of Salva­dor­an food to North Austin.

Austin’s second outlet of the Mexican-influenced Sushi Zushi (3221 Feathergrass Ct., 834-8100, was christened last week with a traditional sake cask-breaking ceremony. In addition to an eclectic selection of sushi rolls, Zushi also serves noodle and rice dishes, teppanyaki options, and other Japanese specialties…

There’s plenty of new pizza in South Austin. Look for the newest Double Dave’s Pizzaworks in Southpark Meadows (9500 S. I-35 Ste. E-300, 301-DAVE,, which has pizza to eat in or take out and a delivery area covering a 3-mile radius from the store.

And the always-busy SoCo favorite Home Slice Pizza (1415 S. Congress, 444-PIES, has expanded to include a handy new take-out store just across the driveway, which might ease the wait for service. Drop into More Home Slice (1419 S. Congress) to pick up items from the entire menu any day of the week…

The best restaurant news I’ve heard in quite a while is that talented chef Marisela Godinez is opening a second outlet of El Mesón Taquería (5808 Burleson, 416-0749) later this month. The new location will feature Godinez’s excellent versions of authentic Interior Mexican dishes for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunches in a newly refurbished building in the same neighborhood as Sazón, La Feria Restaurant, Pie Slice, and Olivia. Talk about a few blocks of good eating! Barring any more unexpected construction and permitting delays, the new El Mesón (2038 S. Lamar, 442-4441) should be open before the end of March, and we can’t wait…
