A new Mexican restaurant is coming to Austin, Gabriela’s Downtown, which actually happens to be found just east of downtown and I-35 on East 7th Street. It’s taking over what was the only American location of Spanish pizza chain 100 Pizzitas, which closed in the summer of 2016.

“I wanted to offer a restaurant that was reflective of my country and traditions,” owner Gabriela Bucio told Eater. The 900 East 7th Street restaurant will focus on traditional Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes from chef Arturo Bucio. The dessert menu boasts of chocoflan and conchas. For cocktails, expect margaritas (and some made with mezcal), Micheladas, and palomas.

The table-service restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner, with later hours held on the weekends. The space will feature murals and artwork on the walls. The massive patio will remain, with tables and hammocks. It’s set to open in early February.

Several blocks east on East 6th Street will be the Mexican-inspired restaurant Suerte from Odd Duck founding partner Sam Hellman-Mass, which is opening sometime this winter.
