Fabi + Rosi, the intimate West Austin European restaurant with a heavy German focus, is closing. The restaurant will remain open through next week, according to its social media accounts, which means its last day of service in Tarrytown on 509 Hearn Street will be on Saturday, December 19, with takeout and curbside services.
Co-owners and couple chef Wolfgang Murber and Cassie Williamson announced the shutter yesterday, on December 11. They wrote that “it’s been a wild ride, but the time has come for us to say goodbye,” and went on to thank their customers: “because of you, not only did this little dream of ours come true, it expanded into much, much more than the two of us could have ever imagined 12 years ago.”
Wolfgang, who is from Germany, met Cassie in Spain and moved to Austin 2007. They opened Fabi + Rosi in 2009, named after his nephew and niece. The restaurant is known for dishes such as the schnitzel with spaetzle, maultaschen (a mushroom ravioli dish), the lemony chevre tart, plus a really strong short wine list.
