The dog days of summer aren’t getting these Austinites down. We officially hit 100 degrees for the first time today, but all that heat isn’t slowing down the restaurant openings or how much y’all are eating out.
Each week, we run our favorite photos tagged with #Austin360Eats on Instagram in print, and here are the photos we’re running in Friday’s paper.
New sushi restaurant alert!! @kaisushiatx is in soft opening and will have their grand opening August 1st. Come check out the beautiful woodwork accents throughout the restaurant done by chef/owner Mike. Kai offers delicious fresh sashimi/nigiri, mouth-watering rolls and a small thoughtful menu of traditional Korean cuisine. Judy and Mike it was great meeting you both today and I will see you soon! #keepaustineatin #austin360eats #myfab5 #sushi #atxsushi #sushiatx
Leander is getting a new Japanese/Korean restaurant with the opening of Kai Sushi at 1805 S. Hwy 183. The eatery is hosting its grand opening celebration this weekend, but Amy Drohen (@sushigirl_atx) got an early look last week.
Even though the Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline serves a full menu, Megan Myers (@stetted) popped by the nearby Cedro, a pizzeria and Italian restaurant at 14028 U.S. 183, to try their carpaccio.
Tacos are not just for Tuesdays, @sweetsweetaustin reminded us in a post from Mellizoz Tacos last weekend. The food truck at 1503 S. First St. is open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week and dinner Thursday through Sunday.
A craving for Spaghetti Alle Vongole brought Michelle Cheng (@foodieisthenewforty) back to Taverna Austin. The Italian restaurant at 258 W. Second St. downtown recently added a variety of new dishes to the menu, and this is one of them.
Popular brunch trailer Biscuits and Groovy recently opened a second location at 10106 Manchaca Road, next to the Moontower Saloon, where @heams39 recently enjoyed the Village Biscuit with white gravy, sausage, jalapeños, cheese and chives.
