1) Rebel Pizza Bar — Just above Suzi’s China Grill in Allandale is the pizza newcomer. Along with pizza, there’s craft beers, Italian appetizers, "naturally enhanced" cotton candy, and pumpkin doughnut holes. The rooftop patio even features a bocce ball court.
2) Svante’s — The beef delivery service and food truck opened up its brick and mortar restaurant. The new menu expands with more burgers and steaks, as well as fish. One Yelper described the atmosphere as "tastefully casual but refined enough for a casual business dinner."
3) Café No Se — The first of the South Congress Hotel’s restaurants, Café No Se centers on all day Californian fare run by executive chef Michael Paley and returning Austinite pastry chef Amanda Rockman. There's good patio space, cheeseburgers, the Kir Royale paleta, and a special blend made by Cuvee. Plus, the brunch game is strong.
4) Royal Jelly — 1970s British rock aesthetic meets small plates in Highland with the opening of Royal Jelly. The wide-ranging menu includes mussels and sandwich with eel, tomato jam, and lettuce. For Yelper Dave M., it works as both a "dinner spot" and "tiny local pub."
5) Mas Vino — For those looking for a neighborhood wine spot in Clarksville, Mas Vino is the answer. Still in the midst of a soft opening by a wine-obsessed oncology research coordinator, the bar will include tapas.
6) Hyderabad Austin — Another Indian option enters the Austin ring with Hyderabad, where the food focuses on both north and south Indian fare, including bhajis, idlis, and curries and biryanis. There are weekend-only dishes like a special chicken curry or shrimp fry.
