Veracruz's new location at the corner of Aldrich Street and Simond Avenue will replace the taco purveyor's existing food trailer in the Mueller area, located at 4209 Airport Blvd. near Browning Hangar. Set to open in early 2022, the new restaurant will serve its classic tacos and juices, and it will include a full bar.
Marufuku Ramen will open its first Austin location on the ground floor of the Alpha Building at 1900 Aldrich St. in 2022. The restaurant, which was founded in San Francisco in 2017 and has seven existing locations across California, Texas and New York, serves Hakata-style tonkotsu ramen.
Also headed to the Alpha Building is Austin Eye Studio—which will relocate from inside the Hancock Shopping Center H-E-B at 1000 E. 41st St.—and Vio Med Spa, which offers services including body contouring, facials, injections and fillers, and facial treatments. It will be the first Austin location for Vio Med Spa.
A walk-up dessert shop, Tinys Milk & Cookies, will also come to the Mueller area next year. It is set to be located on the ground floor of the Origin Hotel, which is under construction at 1825 McBee St., Austin, and slated for an early 2022 opening. Tinys will feature a walk-up window and outdoor seating, and it will sell cookies, coffee, pastries and ice cream. It will be the second Austin location for Tinys.
Aldrich Street district representatives also announced that Lone Star Pediatric Dental and Braces would expand to Mueller, but have not yet confirmed a location or opening date for the office.
