Grizzelda’s, a new creation from the team behind Jacoby’s Restaurant & Mercantile, is set to open late this year in East Austin.

The upscale Mexican restaurant will be located at 105 Tillery St., across the street from Jacoby’s.

“More than three years ago, we made a commitment to lay down roots in East Austin and share our family with the Austin community,” Jacoby Restaurant Group owner/operator Adam Jacoby said. “When the space and opportunity presented itself across the street, it could not have been a better time to grow our restaurant family.”

Jacoby Brand Beef from the Jacoby family ranch in Melvin will be front and center on the Grizzelda’s menu, just like it is at Jacoby’s. That’s not surprising considering Jacoby’s executive chef Albert Gonzalez is leading the Grizzelda’s team.

Austin Ewald, another Jacoby’s veteran, will join Gonzalez in the kitchen.

General manager Kaity Zitz is making the move, too.

Jacoby Restaurant Group creative director Kris Swift is handling the design of Grizzelda’s.

“Grizzelda’s will be modern and comfortable with the same transportive character that you find at Jacoby’s Restaurant & Mercantile,” Swift said. “It will take elements from Texas and various destinations in Mexico and place it at arm’s length, right here in East Austin.”
