The ever-evolving restaurant scene in Austin has provided Fluff Meringues + More a new opportunity for opening its brick and mortar. Instead of the original 4807 Burnet Road slot, the bakery will take over Apothecary Wine Bar and Cafe’s recently-vacated space just across the street.
Owner Kristin Collins attributed the relocation, which she originally announced in fall of 2016, to permitting issues. The basic design from MF Architecture will look the same for the new space. The bakery and restaurant will include the namesake dessert, along with pavlovas, high tea, wine, beer, cider, and coffee. There is no set opening date yet.
Apothecary owner Niraj Mehdiratta shut down the wine bar and restaurant over Memorial Day weekend after eight years of service. In his Facebook note, he alluded to Collins’ plans:
We'll be passing off our space to a new owner who'll be creating a new concept here, one we hope you'll come to love and support for another 8 years and hopefully beyond.
