Despite funding delays, Elm Restaurant Group issued a statement that the 24 Diner team is still working with the landlord to open the new location at Domain Northside.

Elm Restaurant Group co-founder Scott Hentschel said construction funding for 24 Diner's Domain Northside location has faced "several delays but is on track to close in the next several weeks."

Original post:

The long-anticipated opening of 24 Diner at Domain Northside may not end up happening.

A noticed posted Feb. 6 at 24 Diner's proposed location in Domain Northside at 3100 Esperanza Crossing, Ste. 100, Austin, stated that the restaurant group defaulted on lease payments and its access to the property has been terminated.

The notice from The Deitch Law Offices, representing Domain Northside, is addressed to ELM Restaurant Group, which operates 24 Diner and other Austin establishments including Irene’s, Italic and Fareground at One Eleven.

It states that Elm Restaurant Group can re-enter the lease agreement, which it signed in April 2016, if defaulted payments are secured in full and the group provides an additional $350,000 as a security deposit.

Representatives from Domain Northside and Elm Restaurant Group have not yet commented on the status of the new location.
