Five new businesses are bringing menus to Austin's east side.

2. Easy Tiger East opened March 3 at 1501 E. Seventh St., Austin, at the former location of event space 7Co. This is the third Austin location for the bake shop, restaurant and beer garden, which closed its original downtown location on East Sixth Street last year. The new location features 15,000 square feet of outdoor space. 512-839-8523.

3. Love Supreme, a New York-style pizza bar by the owners of Bird Bird Biscuit and Thunderbird Coffee, will open at 2805 Manor Road, Austin, in April. Chef Russell Victorioso will serve up 13-inch pies, appetizers and salads with ingredients from local farmers. The bar will also offer "patio-friendly cocktails," boozy slushies, draft beer and natural wines.

4. Sushi restaurant Tsuke Edomae opened March 4 in the Mueller development at 4600 Mueller Blvd., Ste. 1035, Austin, in the former location of Kyoten Sushiko. Chef Michael Che previously operated Tuske Honten out of a food truck at Hopsquad Brewing Co. on Kramer Lane. His career also includes an apprenticeship under Otto Phan, who ran Kyoten Sushiko before moving to Chicago. 512-825-3120.

5. Wicky’s Walkup, a “swamp tiki”-themed walk-up window and patio offering bodega merchandise and a casual menu, opens March 22 at 2400 Webberville Road, Austin. The menu features muffalettas, shrimp rolls, tots, breakfast biscuits and to-go frozen daiquiris. Sharing ownership with neighboring Southern-inspired pub The Cavelier, Wicky’s also serves as a notary public. 512-696-4318.
