Austin’s favorite all-hours diner chain Kerbey Lane Cafe is opening its entirely new restaurant, the health-focused High Note, next week on Tuesday, April 16, as reported by Austin 360. The new restaurant will be found in Zilker at 300 South Lamar Boulevard.
High Note is meant to offer dishes that appeal to a wide array of dietary needs. There’s something for everyone, from vegans to vegetarians to those looking for paleo, gluten-free, and keto-friendly items. There’s an emphasis on organic, local meats and produce, and using not that much gluten, dairy, soy, and peanuts in its items.
That means dishes like superfood oats and berries, edamame hummus on toast, poke wraps, vegan queso, Korean beef, yellow coconut curry, and much more. The restaurant is making use of local restaurants and products, like grain-free tortilla/tortilla chip company Siete Family Foods, pastries and bread from Sour Duck Market and GYF Bakery, and vegan ice cream from Nada Moo.
Drinks-wise, there are fruit and vegetable juices with options to add liquor, like the kale/apple/almond/lime with vodka or the sweet potato/pineapple/tiki spices/lime with rum.
Originally, the restaurant was meant to be helmed by chef Joe Anguiano, but he left both Kerbey and High Note earlier this year. He had been the chef of now-shuttered restaurant Vox Table.
Mason Ayers, the CEO of Kerbey Lane, said that if High Note does well, he would expand the restaurant within Austin. High Note’s restaurant space used to be home to the short-lived Italian spot Barile and before that, Flour and Vine.
Kerbey Lane is still working on opening that long-awaited West Braker Lane location in Westlake.
