One of Austin's best Sichuan restaurants will open a second branch in South Austin. A + A Sichuan is frequently cited as a favorite by Austin chefs and diners alike, and now they're taking over Tien Jin on West Gate Boulevard. The Statesman has the details:
Mike Chou will close his Tien Jin Chinese Restaurant at 4534 West Gate Blvd. after service this weekend. Mr. Chou, who has operated the restaurant for more than 20 years, will retire from the restaurant business to pursue the practice of Chinese medicine. The owners of A+A Sichuan will re-open the restaurant early next week under the name Sichuan River.
