Owner Bridget Dunlap closed Burn Pizza + Bar last month to make way for Collide ATX, a eatery, drinking den, arts space, and performance venue, slated to open Wednesday, February 1. The creative space on East Sixth Street will host guest chefs, artists, and musicians beginning with Patrick Armstrong and Clayton Young of Boca, the Spanish-influenced food truck parked at Rainey Street’s Container Bar.

The duo behind Boca will offer three distinct menus centered on Spanish cuisine during their residency at Collide ATX. The daily menu will include patatas bravas, alitas de pollo, pulled pork tacos, and garbanzo bean nachos. Friday and Saturday’s dinner menus will also feature those items with additional dishes. There will also be a Sunday brunch service.

Collide ATX’s restaurant, run by rotating chefs, will be open daily to the public. The chefs and offerings rotate every 60 days, so Boca’s limited edition menu will only be available through March 31. Collide ATX has teased that upcoming chefs will hail from Chicago, New Orleans, and Mexico City, with details to be announced. Ticketed prix fixe dinners and cooking demos were also touted as potential events.

Collide ATX is a partnership between Dunlap ATX led by Bridget Dunlap (the force behind Lustre Pearl, Clive Bar, Container Bar, Parlor & Yard, Trackside, and the now defunct Burn Pizza + Bar) and Collide, a boutique culture agency that produces annual events around the globe such as Collide on Rainey during SXSW.
