Leaf is reopening with a bigger space and menu in downtown Austin, on
Monday, January 4, just in time for those New Year’s resolutions. Update, January 7: A tipster found out that Leaf isn't open yet and it appears to be "very much under construction." Calls to the restaurant went unanswered. Update, January 19: Leaf is now open, but only for walk-in orders. The team is working on takeout service now.
As reported by Austin 360, the 115 West 6th Street restaurant will serve its twelve signature salad combinations, along with build-your-own bowls, sandwiches, to-go options, and other entrees. Owner Jordan Feiner will work on adding dinner hours. The salad bistro opened in 2007 on West 2nd Street. It closed down in late July with the new location already lined up.
Will 2016 be the year of the salad? Already slated are expansions of Colorado chain MAD Greens to the Domain’s Rock Rose District, and New Mexico-based Vinaigrette along South Congress. Then there is the revitalization of Austin favorite Baby Greens on West Anderson Lane late next year.
