Velvet Taco, the Dallas-based minichain, is coming to Austin, as reported by Escape Hatch Dallas. It's the latest new spot attached to the ever-growing expansions of upscale mall The Domain. This will be its fifth city, with locations in Dallas, Forth Worth, Houston, and Chicago.
Velvet Taco’s emphasizes in-house ingredients, including the ever-important tortillas. Many of the fillings veer towards untraditional, like crispy tikka chicken, shrimp and grits, and ahi poke. The menu also has red velvet cake for sweets, and beer, wine, and margaritas. The spots are known for staying open late, like until 4 a.m. in Dallas. Eater has reached out for more details; watch this space for updates.
The development of The Domain continues to grow with the openings and announcements of new restaurants and expansions. Shake Shack’s second location recently opened at The Domain. Forthcoming area hotel The Archer will also feature Second Bar + Kitchen’s second location. The brand new shopping district Rock Rose will soon be home to several bars and restaurants, including East Side King’s Thai Kun brick and mortar.
