Austin institution The Omelettry’s much-delayed new home on Airport Boulevard is now officially open, after the shutter of the original restaurant on Burnet Road. Owners Kenny and Jesse Carpenter invited regular customers to the new spot for a soft opening over Memorial Day weekend. The torrential thunderstorms affected the new building according to a rep. It almost flooded on Saturday, and there was a power outage earlier this morning, but everything is operational now.
The original Omelettry opened in 1978, and searched for a new location in 2014 after being priced out. During the transition, the Burnet Road restaurant remained open during construction on on Airport Boulevard. The iconic building on Burnet closed on May 4 and is set to be demolished sometime this week.
The new Omelettry’s all-day breakfast menu will stay the same, offering the namesake omelettes, as well as pancakes, huevos rancheros, and more. It will be open every day from 7 a.m.-5 p.m.
