Trudy’s, the Austin-based Tex-Mex restaurant, is planning to open a new seafood restaurant concept called Trudy’s Del Mar on South Congress on Dec. 29.

The new restaurant’s menu will include a seasonal ceviche and crudo selection, as well as a seared tuna garnished with grilled pineapple pico and surf and turf fajitas made with steak and lobster, according to a news release.


The restaurant will be located at 1600 S. Congress Ave., in the storefront that was previously the South Congress Cafe. The menu will continue to feature South Congress Cafe's brunch in addition to the new seafood dishes.
