Inside Bryce Gilmore’s Spacious New Barley Swine, Now Open

More dishes, seats, and drinks.

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.

The relocated Barley Swine, which opened yesterday on Burnet, comes complete with new updates to Bryce Gilmore’s restaurant. Along with the tasting menu, there's an a la carte one, plus a full bar and desserts. Eater photographer Robert J. Lerma took a tour of the larger rustic space.

The Levy Architects-designed restaurant’s aesthetic is similar to the original iteration and sister spot Odd Duck, with many restored elements like pecan tabletops. All 65 seats (up from South Lamar’s 36-person-capacity), including counter, comfortable banquettes, and tables, will have a good view of the massive open kitchen, with its wood grill.

In Gilmore’s spirit of using everything, there will be a garden in the back and planters in the front patio. A rainwater collection system was rigged to feed plants. The back patio will feature a chef’s garden table fitting about ten to twelve people, which will be available in the spring.
