Mettle, the "east side bistro" from entrepreneur Bridget "Queen of Rainey Street" Dunlap, with Olivia veteran chef Andrew Francisco in the kitchen, opened last week with a medley of a menu that includes fried chicken, mussels, Chinese broccoli, crab soup and more.

Eater Austin sent photographer Spencer Selvidge over for a look inside the 4,000 square foot restaurant, which features a floor-to-ceiling sculpture from Austin's Ion Art, an original painting by Ian Shults and a glass sculpture from the East Side Glass Studio's Leigh Taylor Wyatt that hangs from the ceiling.

Mettle is open Tue­­sday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., with a brunch menu "coming soon."
