4 New Restaurants to Try Right Now

If the chew fits... Trend-setting restaurants worth stepping out to this month.

Vixen's Wedding

EAST AUSTIN // The showcase restaurant at ARRIVE East Austin Hotel, jaw-dropping Vixen's Wedding (from the chefs behind Lenoir) is a stunner thanks to magical greenery displayed throughout, hanging wax canvas light fixtures and splashes of neon pink. Try something you've never experienced before from the Goan-Portugese menu, like smoky beet dosa and poha crusted fish. Pretty cocktails like the Holy Basil Colada will send you into sweet oblivion. Photo: @charlie.c.charlie


SOCO // From a.m. coffee to p.m. cocktails, Velouria is serving up some seriously chill, sexy vibes. The mix of luxe green, mod lighting and sleek woods throughout make it a place to stay for a long convo amongst friends. Morning cold brew and pastries are a great pick me up while the later menu of cheese and charcuterie boards and classic cocktails like the Bees Knees will take you to your happy place. Tip: try the frozen espresso martini.

Rosedale Kitchen and Bar

ROSEDALE // Say hello to Austin's newest light and airy all-day neighborhood nosh spot. Rosedale Kitchen and Bar's craveable menu ranges from quick salads and healthy fresh fish grain bowls to loaded burgers, cauliflower steak and signature gunpowder fries. Drop by for a game of jumbo Jenga or shuffleboard in between sips of handcrafted cocktails like the summer-friendly Blue Fashioned.

Lefty's Brick Bar

EAST AUSTIN // If you're an al fresco type of person, the casual outdoor Lefty's Brick Bar at ARRIVE East Austin Hotel, with its festive tile and brightly colored seating, will be your new stomping grounds. Cajun influences abound at the bar with creative concepts like Banh Boy sandwiches - a hybrid of the banh mi and the po-boy - and bourbon spiked sips like the Du Monde Old Fashioned. Cool tip: get the boozy sno-balls.
