Downtown modern Mexican restaurant ATX Cocina is set to open on Monday, July 17 in the Northshore building on San Antonio Street. It’ll start off with dinner service only, with lunch and brunch added at a later date.

The menu, from executive chef Kevin Taylor, will include snacks and sharable dishes like sopes, queso fundido, masa corn tortillas, chili roasted chicken, and shrimp al carbon. People can watch the raw fish dish being made at the crudo bar. For drinks, the bar list will focus heavily on tequila and mezcal, as well as wine and beer. The space includes indoor and outdoor seating with communal tables, and a wine counter.

The restaurant is from Austin restaurant vets Larry Foles and Guy Villavaso, who were behind Hopdoddy Burger Bar, Eddie V's, Old Thousand, and other places. Taylor was the executive chef of modern Mexican restaurant El Vez, one of Starr Restaurant Group’s establishments. He also worked in the kitchens of the Inn at Little Washington in Virginia and Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas.

Nearby, Tex-Mex restaurant Polvos is opening its third location in the Austin 360 building, taking over Prelog’s old digs.
