Modern Thai restaurant Sway is expanding with two new locations next year. The first will be in West Lake Hills, taking over Thai Kitchen found on 3437 Bee Caves Road. The second will be joining the ever-growing circle of establishments set for The Domain’s Rock Rose district later next year. Neighbors will include East Side King Thai Kun brick and mortar, Velvet Taco's first Austin location, and other bars and restaurants.
The expansion is being overseen by Jesse Herman and his hospitality group New Waterloo, which also runs La Condesa, South Congress Hotel, and others. Sway opened in 2012 under Herman and Rene Ortiz, who served as executive chef. Ortiz left in 2013. Alexis Chong took over his position, but also left her position earlier this year.
