A Look Back at the Best Restaurants to Come to Austin in the 2010s30 Dec Team ATX Life Admin
With all of the foodies flocking to the area and so many recent changes in the last decade, we thought it was important to take a look back at the best restaurants to come to Austin in the 2010s.
From a trailer to a brick and mortar storefront, Via 313 has started from humble beginnings in 2011 before first opening the restaurant we know and love today back in 2013. It’s now where many people turn for an authentic, cheesy Detroit-style pizza. It’s not just the food that has made Via 313 popular; it’s the style and culture that feels so natural to the Austin area that keeps it thriving.
It’s hard to think of a time before Ramen Tatsu-Ya was the recommendation people would make when they had a craving for something hot, tasty, and filling, but the local ramen spot opened its doors for the first time back in 2012. The team behind Ramen Tatsu-Ya has continued to develop restaurants that have turned Austinites on their heads, including Kemuri Tatsu-Ya, established in 2016, and DipDipDip Tatsu-Ya, established in 2019.
Southern cuisine took a turn to include more new-age flair in this last decade, and Olamaie is one that always stands out amongst the rest. Established in 2014, this restaurant has a menu that changes daily due to ingredients that are in season and available. With southern recipes and an Austin twist, Olamaie is a must-visit.
If you’re talking about restaurants that brought inventive twists to what we’ve come to expect from a dining experience, you have to mention Dai Due’s opening in 2014. As a one-stop-shop, you can find everything you’ll ever want right here, and they do it perfectly every time around. Dai Due is a butcher shop, bakery, all-day farm-to-table restaurant that continues to deliver fresh recipes.
From 2010 - 2019, we saw new recipes, intriguing meal preparations, and huge flavor profiles culminating in a variety of restaurants springing up. In the new decade, we know that there’s even more to look forward to and more exciting restaurants that are sure to open up. Our team always stays on top of the latest news and projected plans for businesses and neighborhoods.
