Austin institution Kerbey Lane Cafe has finally revealed more details about its new South Lamar restaurant, High Note. Located in a complex of condos at 300 South Lamar Boulevard, the Zilker restaurant will serve healthy foods and a full bar. It’s slated to open in January or February 2019.

Chef Joe Anguiano (formerly of shuttered restaurant Vox Table) is still staying tight lipped about the menu, but reveals that it will be health-oriented, sourced from local farmers, and 90 percent gluten-free, in an interview with Austin Monthly. He even plans to make the cocktails with fruit juice and aguas frescas. The only menu item revealed was vegan queso, which writer Rosie Ninesling tried, but did not reveal hints as to its flavor.

Kerbey Lane CEO Mason Ayer shared with Eater that they wanted to make healthy ingredients accessible to people with special diets with the new restaurant.

The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and will adopt a counter service model. The 3,000 square-foot restaurant, designed by Richard Weiss of Weiss Architecture, will also include a patio.

This space has gone through several changes lately. It was previously home to short-lived Italian spot Barile Restaurant, and before that it was Flour and Vine.
