A “maddening” new restaurant called Nosh will open at the This Too Shall Pass lounge space in downtown Austin this month. The restaurant is helmed by Chef Kennedy Grace, who appeared on season 13 of food competition show “Master Chef,” and is part of Method Three Hospitality.

On the menu

Nosh serves a compact dinner menu with just two appetizers, three entrees and two desserts that rotate monthly.

Appetizers include a vegetarian “bone marrow” dish with king oyster mushrooms, shishito pepper pesto and pickled radish as well as a chili cheese dog ravioli with bulgogi sausage and chili crisp. The main entrees include zucchini pasta, elk tenderloin and sea bass collar. Tres leche cake and a rotating flavor of ice cream are available for dessert.

Quote of note

"We're thrilled to bring Nosh to the heart of downtown Austin," Grace said in a news release. "Our goal is to create a dining experience that not only delights and teases the palate but also tells a story of a method to the madness through food. Nosh is a celebration of flavors, creativity, art and community."

What else?

Guests can opt for the “Chef’s Table Experience: Trust the Madness” in which Grace tells the story behind each dish. The experience is limited to one table per night.

Nosh is open Wednesday-Sunday at 4-6 p.m. for happy hour and from 6-10 p.m. for dinner service. The space will also be open as a lounge from 10 p.m.-2 a.m. Thursday-Saturday, representatives said.

The restaurant is small and reservations are recommended.
