New restaurants in Austin are opening all the time.

Don’t miss a moment of culinary delight with this roundup of the hottest new restaurants in Austin!


She’s Not Here

She’s Not Here is in the heart of the 2nd Street District in the same building as Violet Crown Cinema. This Pacific Asian restaurant has well-crafted tropical cocktails, nigiri and sashimi specials, sushi, hand rolls and plates. DO NOT MISS the crab butter. It will transport your taste buds to another world!


Last Straw

Last Straw is leading the list of new restaurants in Austin with F-U-N! Head to East 6th for Tiki drinks with tons of umbrellas. They also have snacks like chips and dip, fried rice and tacos to keep your tummy full. For a limited time you can drop $1k to become a Founding Member and get one free drink per visit and 25% off food for life!



Brama brings Eastern European Cuisine to North Austin on Steck Avenue. Russian, Ukranian, Polish and Romanian dishes have lovingly been recreated and brought to this new restaurant in Austin. The Pelmini (meat dumplings, although that doesn’t do them justice), is a must have! Also their Borsch will transport you back to the Motherland!


Korean Komfort


This brick and mortar version of the beloved food truck is located on Guadalupe just north of the UT Campus. The Bibimbap is such a large portion, you’ll have lunch for tomorrow too! Order the kimchi fries for a decadent appetizer treat!

I ❤️Poke! 😍

Serving authentic Hawaiian dishes like Poke and Kalua Pork and Cabbage, Big Kahuna will transport you to the island on Brodie Lane! This South Austin standout started life as a trailer, but you can now enjoy their deliciousness inside or on their patio. Diners recommend the poke, Teriyaki sauce and they even have burgers! Also, this is one of the dog friendly restaurants in Austin; your pupper can hang with you on their patio!
