Stylish new diner Sawyer & Co. announced an official opening date: Friday September 12. After a successful run of soft openings over the weekend, the restaurant will open for breakfast and lunch only. Friday's opening is 8 a.m., though no set closing was announced; the restaurant closed at 3 p.m. during the soft opening run. Dinner service will launch in the coming weeks.
The project from Stephen Shallcross of Swoop House and designer Mickie Spencer features playful mid-century modern design. The restaurant takes over the former Arkie's space on E. Cesar Chavez, and the menu features nods to the Austin institution. Sawyer has a full liquor license, and will feature kegged cocktails.
