Ciola described the concept as “comfortable and unpretentious, but refined,” with a “classic American feel.”
Ciola and Ford said the menu reflects the restaurant’s approachable feel and offers everything from wings to Atlantic salmon.
“It’s important to us that people leave talking about how good the food was, not how big the bill was,” Ciola said.
Since 2011, the team has opened two locations and said one more is on the way this summer at the Hill Country Galleria.
Ciola and Ford, lifelong Austinites, attribute some of their success to their roots in the Lake Travis area. They have an understanding of the region and its community members, Ciola said, adding that as a result, the restaurant has earned the admiration of a number of regular customers.
The new Bee Cave location will feature the same chef-inspired and made-from-scratch menu, which features lobster roll sliders, a crowned wedge salad and burgers ground in-house.
Encompassing about 5,000 square feet, The Hill Country Galleria location will be the largest and will include an indoor and outdoor bar, patio area and a private room for community events and parties.
The pair said they are optimistic about the summer opening at the galleria and know that due to the loyalty of their customers and the area’s growth there is room for each location to prosper.
