Tour Downtown Italian Restaurant Italic’s Mid-Century Modern Space

Andrew Curren’s fourth new restaurant will open this week.

Nadia Chaudhury is the editor of Eater Austin covering food and pop culture, as well as a photographer, writer, and frequent panel moderator and podcast guest.

Italic, the new Italian venture from ELM Group, will open its doors to downtown Austin sometime this week. Until then, Eater photographer Robert J. Lerma got a sneak peek into the new space in the historic Starr Building.

Run by ELM’s Andrew Curren and Craig Collins, Italic features a mid-century modern aesthetic designed by architects Furman + Keil and interior designers VeroKolt. There are concrete walls, wood paneling, and the steel and glass wine mezzanine featuring Italian wines. Two commissioned collages by artist John Gall grace the walls. The open kitchen will dish out wood-fired pizza, pasta, and burrata, along with other Italian cuisine. Lunch and dinner will be served, along with a happy hour.

Italic is the first of four new Italian restaurants slated for Austin in 2015. ELM is also opening Irene’s, a New American restaurant, sometime later this year.
