The first official restaurant closure of the year is here: Downtown New American restaurant The Bonneville is closing. Its last day on 202 West Cesar Chavez Street will be on Saturday, January 18.
Taking over Bonneville’s prime downtown Austin address, facing the river, is an as-of-yet-unnamed restaurant group. Bonneville co-owners and co-chefs Jennifer Costello and Chris Hurley weren’t able to disclose exactly which group that is yet. AMLI Retail, which is the landlord of the West Cesar Chavez address, worked on that new deal.
After the restaurant closes, Costello and Hurley don’t have any restaurant-related plans in their near futures.
Costello and Hurley opened Bonneville on New Year’s Eve in 2012. The menu spanned New American dishes like seared scallops, chickens under bricks, and salt cod fritters. The restaurant also used to host a French-Canadian Christmas Eve dinner.
This article incorrectly described Bonneville as a six-year-old restaurant. It has been corrected since.
