Urbanspace’s Favorite Austin Food Delivery + Take-Out Spots

However, some of Austin’s best restaurants remain open with carry-out and delivery options. While typical takeout options range from drive-thrus to pizza delivery, many local restaurants that have never offered takeout service before have turned to the new model.

The Peacock

Inspired by foods and flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean, such as North Africa, Greece, Israel , and Lebanon — The Peacock gives a new twist to the worldly decadent cuisine. Mezze and wood-grilled flare is colorful and loosely plated, healthy and wholesome. Natural wines, light mixed spirits with lots of fresh herbs, fruits and citrus add to the menu.

 

 

 

 

 

Goldie’s

Inspired by a little old-fashioned back room, with whispers of a Turkish bar translated with a touch of Austin’s cool, laid-back vibe. Seating at the actual sunken bar inspires in-depth conversations for guests to linger over boutique wines, supercall sips, and garden-fresh cocktails.

Culinary Curiosity | Happy Chicks

Happy Chicks

360 Nueces St. Suite 20

Everyone’s favorite chicken tender joint opened a new location! The Nueces location opened September 7th with the same hours as the E 6th location, 11:00 am – Midnight Sunday through Wednesday, 11:oo am – 2:00 am Thursday through Saturday.

Happy Chicks grew out of a weekend when our founder relied on a tried & true chicken tender recipe to feed his entire family. He noticed the recipe put smiles on everyone’s faces, both young and old. The universal appeal of the meal sparked an idea for a downtown eatery that would feature the prized chicken tenders, complete with their famed secret crunch.

Our menu, which includes original and spicy tenders, bacon mac and cheese, jalapeno cornbread, fries and desserts, has quickly become popular with the downtown crowd. We make it all, even our 14 dipping sauces, every morning. At Happy Chicks, we can proudly say our food is as good as it looks, and feels as good as it tastes.

Happy Chicks is a true downtown favorite of Austin.

Downtown Development Digest | Punch Bowl Social

Punch Bowl Social has recently announced its expansion into downtown Austin, and is expecting to open its doors February 2019.

Punch Bowl Social has recently announced its expansion into downtown Austin, and is expecting to open its doors around February 2019.

This will be Austin’s second Punch Bowl Social location, with the first being at The Domain. The Denver-based, entertainment restaurant chain has made a name for itself across the country. With their overloaded restaurants also being home to vintage arcade games, karaoke rooms, bowling alleys, virtual reality experiences, table games and bars, these eatery’s are practically a grown-up’s ideal playground!

Punch Bowl Social has taken a stance on being a place for people to come and be themselves. The restaurant chain believes in the “dirty modern mash up of chandeliers, food for foodies, PBR tallboys and craft beverages,” as well as “brunch turning into a bowling party and bowling parties turning into all-you-can-sing karaoke.” You can expect the general atmosphere of these locations to offer a full-range experience of unequalled music, food, games, beverages and exploration. Their mission is to provide an environment tailored for each person’s desired “going out” experience.

In 2012 The Punch Bowl Social originally opened in Denver, and since then has expanded to 12 locations across the country with several more coming soon. Austin’s new establishment will be located within the Scarbrough Building at 522 Congress Avenue and 6th Street. Robert Thompson, founder and CEO, revealed his reasoning behind choosing this building: its historical value, Chicago-style architecture, Art Deco details and, not to mention, the building’s prime location in the heart of Austin.

One of the up-and-coming downtown location’s most differentiating features is a “more Texas- and Tex-Mex menu,” according to Hugh Acheson, a James Beard Award-winning chef, restaurateur, author, Top Chef judge and Punch Bowl Social’s culinary partner. The approach to creating this menu has been based on the anticipation of engulfing the nation’s culinary landscape in its entirety.

Although February 2019 may seem a ways away, we’re always looking forward to experiencing downtown Austin’s newest additions!

At the street level, drinks and a sampling of Fareground vendors will be available at a grab-and-go station.This innovative service is projected to arrive Spring 2018.The idea to reinvent and repurpose One Eleven Congress stemmed from a vision to better suit the modern Austinite. 

Fareground’s collaborative nature was designed by Michael Hsu Office of Architecture and the plan to feature a united-eatery was coordinatedby ELM Restaurant Group, an Austin-based team behind Irene’s, 24 Diner and Easy Tiger. Their intentions were to create the opportunity for today’s Austinites to get the most out of their beloved downtown and to get it all in one place.
