Other Austin Restaurant Openings and Closings

Dwight’s coverage of Hudson on the Bend’s closing reminded me that I wanted to put up a list of restaurant openings and closings of note. These are places we’ve either eaten at, thought about eating at, or plan on eating at.


  • Cannon + Belle (500 E 4th St, (512) 493-4900): “Creative farm-to-table comfort fare.” Took over Finn & Porter’s space in the Hilton Austin downtown.
  • Culinary Dropout (11721 Rock Rose #100, (512) 777-3394): Gastropub chain.
  • DeSano Pizza Bakery (8000 Burnet Rd, (512) 323-2426): Nashville chain.
  • Kemuri-Tatsuya (2713 East 2nd Street, (512) 893-5561): New restaurant by the Ramen Tatsu-ya people.
  • Kuneho (1600 East 6th Street Austin, (512) 436-9626): Paul Qui’s new restaurant.
  • Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen (11617 Research Blvd., (512) 953-9283): New location of the Houston-based Cajun restaurant chain.

  1. Dwight Brown says:

    I don’t remember if I mentioned it to you or not, but Fore in Lakeway (where we had an SDC) also closed in the later part of 2016.

    Possibly also worth noting: Pao’s in Lakeway has started closing on Tuesday. (They are still open the other six days of the week.)
