Round Rock fast-casual restaurant Greenhouse Craft Food is expanding with a second location found deeper within the Austin suburbs. This new Greenhouse will be found in Georgetown at 708 South Austin Avenue, taking over the former space of shuttered fine dining restaurant The Hollow. It is set to open in November.
The Georgetown location of Greenhouse will have be a mix of popular dishes from the Round Rock location and specials unique to the new restaurant. Executive chef and owner Rob Snow teased that the restaurant will highlight smoked items, like brisket enchiladas. Dishes from the original location that will appear include burgers, salads, and sandwiches like the Texas Beef Dip. Plus there will be Texas craft beer, milkshakes, and live music.
The Georgetown location will initially open for lunch and dinner and serve weekend brunch, though the hours are not available yet. The Round Rock locations also offers a weekday breakfast.
Snow opened the first location of Greenhouse in Round Rock in 2013. He opened a second Round Rock restaurant, Scarlet Rabbit, in 2014, and shuttered it in 2017. Recently, he also opened a Texas comfort food restaurant with chef Bryan Beneke in South Austin called Hideaway Kitchen & Bar. He was previously executive chef at the Mansion at Judge’s Hill (which is now Hotel Ella).
Chef Jacob Hilbert closed the Hollow earlier this spring, and he had been attached to Jester King Brewery’s forthcoming restaurant, but it seems like that’s not happening anymore. Instead, Hilbert opened a new restaurant, Ramble Restaurant and Farmhouse Grill, in Salado, Texas.
