2. Easy Tiger East opened March 3 at 1501 E. Seventh St., Austin, at the former location of event space 7Co.

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.

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.
