Tumble 22 has spread its wings. (yeah, I said it.) the popular downtown hot chicken truck that sits behind star bar opened a brick-and-mortar location at 7211 burnet road in the space formerly occupied by twisted root burger co.

The restaurant includes table service and is open weekdays from 11 a.M. To 9 p.M. And until 10 p.M. On weekends. In addition to the legs, thighs, breast, wings and sandwiches you can order at the original trailer, guests can also choose from a menu that includes raw and fried oysters as well as salads, duck fat fries, mac ‘n cheese, and house-made pies such as the texas pecan, tennessee buttermilk and mile-high lemon meringue, plus soft serve ice cream and shakes.Original trailer


tumble 22 on burnet also offers a full bar

Via 313 opened its east austin restaurant at 1802 E. Sixth st. The restaurant will offer dine-in dinner service only during the first month, from 5 to 10 p.M. Sunday-wednesday and 5 to 11 p.M. Thursday-saturday. Plans are to add lunch in april. The restaurant will serve the same menus at the other brick-and-mortar locations.

With the opening of the new restaurant comes the departure of the original trailer. It moved to 510 rio grande st. In the west sixth district. The address was previously home to kung fu saloon and will be home starting next month sometime to a new bar called stereotype. The pizza trailer is open 5 p.M. To midnight sunday-wednesday and 5 p.M. To 2 a.M. Thursday-saturday. The trailer will eventually add lunch hours.

Downtown fine dining destination counter 357 is switching things up a bit. The restaurant eric earthman opened in march 2015 is now offering lunch service.Sunday-wednesday thursday-saturday the menu, offered tuesday-friday from 11 a.M. To 2 p.M., includes items like mussels, chicken with curry, and ice cream. The restaurant says no reservations are needed for lunch.

Spearheading the menu is new head chef alan delgado. He has spent the past year operating the tumahye pop-up supper club series and previously served as sous chef at rene ortiz’s launderette for about a year and a half.

Lunch is the latest move by counter 357 to make the restaurant a little more approachable. It added a la carte offerings like cheese and charcuterie boards and meatballs to a lounge menu last year, along with more seating. With its tucked away location between the elephant room and swift’s attic, it is low-key one of the best retreats for a great cocktail or glass of wine and snack downtown.

It was recently announced that former counter 357 executive chef damien brockway will be joining the new line ATX as chef of the hotel’s rooftop lounge, P6.Sunday-wednesday thursday-saturday

Chefs tatsu aikawa and takuya matsumoto, the owners of popular ramen shops ramen tatsu-ya (a recent james beard best new restaurant semifinalist), have confirmed they signed a lease for the restaurant at 1600 E. Sixth st. That previously housed paul qui restaurants qui and kuneho. They have not said what the concept will be or when it will be open, but given that the space is fully built out already, I wouldn’t expect the wait to be terribly long.

Steven dilley and his crew at bufalina will welcome their friends from roberta’s in brooklyn back to austin on march 23-25. The famed pizza makers from new york will serve from 11 a.M. To 11:30 p.M over those three days at the 1519 E. Cesar chavez st. Location.

Dilley hasn’t released the menu yet, but expect some of the best pizza you can find just about anywhere (and if the food gods are smiling on us, maybe some of roberta’s pasta or italian grinder). Also, expect crowds.Original trailer roberta’s brought their crew down here a couple of years ago, and the response was incredible. Pro tip: try and go during non-peak times.
