Tipsters tell Eater Austin that El Arbol — which won the 2010 Eater Award for Hottest Restaurant — is closed effective immediately. Calls to the restaurant were answered but confirmed that the owners have decided to shutter El Arbol.
General Manager Victor Farnsworth added that he'd like to thank El Arbol's customers, and "we appreciate patronage and support." Guess it's hard for a restaurant that's known for its three story patio to survive a summer like this one.
