Kicked Up Grub, an all-day restaurant serving a mix of Mediterranean-influenced dishes and New American food, has opened in the space at 3403 S. Lamar Blvd. in the space previously occupied by Manin Pasta.
The kitchen is helmed by some chefs that appear new to the Austin scene, with a wide-ranging menu that stretches from a selection of toasts, French toasts, sandwiches and pancakes at breakfast to Mediterranean-influenced pasta and vegetable dishes, and an array of burgers. The owners state on the website that the restaurant was born of one partner’s desire for whiskey and meat and the other’s longing for healthier fare.
The short-lived Manin Pasta opened at the end of last year, taking the place of Aroma Italian Kitchen.
Kicked Up Grub is open Tuesday-Thursday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
