For more downtown Austin changes, a new modern Mexican restaurant is coming to the San Antonio Street with ATX Cocina. The menu is supposed to place a big emphasis on corn along with housemade masa, along with chicken, beef, and seafood entrees, and margaritas.
Behind ATX Cocina are Guy Villavaso and Larry Foles, who have long been part of Austin's dining scene, from Eddie V's, Hopdoddy Burger Bar, Roaring Fork, and other spots. Matt Creekmore, who previously worked at Lonesome Dove, is the restaurant’s general manager. He previously ran Lonesome Dove.
While there is no opening date set, it seems like ATX Cocina will open soon. The restaurant is currently hiring for all positions, including servers, bartenders, line cooks, and more.
Northshore will also become home to Le Politique nee Chez Nada, the French brasserie and bakery from New Waterloo.
Similarly, Vox Table opened its upscale yet casual Mexican restaurant El Burro last December. Nearby Mexican restaurants is La Condesa on 2nd Street.
