Barley Swine, Bryce Gilmore’s fine dining restaurant, will be completely leaving its current location on South Lamar for a new spot on Burnet Road. Originally pegged as the restaurant’s second location earlier this year, the 6555 Burnet Road site will become the new flagship. The South Austin place will close down after four months in November, but it will still be used as an events space until next year.
While keeping the same name, the concept in the new space won’t be restricted to just the tasting room menu. There will be small plates, a full bar (which wasn’t available before) with seasonal cocktails with housemade mixes, a chef’s garden table, and a bar pantry with non-alcoholic sodas like smoked gooseberry shrub and peach and jam jalapeno. The current location is testing out serving a la carte items with its hour of snacks and drinks.
Barley Swine’s new neighbors on Burnet Road will be Bufalina Due, the Neapolitan pizza place’s second location, and a second Lick.
