Austin restaurateurs Gabriela and Arturo Bucio, purveyors of downtown modern Mexican restaurant Gabriela’s, announced Feb. 24 an expansion into the North Austin area with two new restaurants.

With the announcement, the couple launched Gabriela’s Group, a new restaurant and bar management company that will oversee different dining concepts in Austin.

The new restaurant group is expected to launch a second location of its Taquero Mucho concept at 11101 Burnet Road, Ste. 150, Austin, across from The Domain in North Austin. This location, which the company states is slated to open later this spring, will feature a fruteria and Mexican juice bar with specialty drinks and desserts.

Taquero Mucho has one other location in downtown Austin. The boutique restaurant serves tacos, sopes and tortas alongside a brunch menu and specialty margaritas.

Gabriela’s Group also announced Feb. 24 that it will debut a new Mexican seafood restaurant concept named Seareinas in March near the St. John area at 6607 N. I-35, Austin.

According to the restaurant group, the company has completely renovated the Seareinas building, which now features more than 6,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor dining space. Seareinas will host live music and entertainment, and its outdoor area will allow for games and other bar activities.
