Fareground food hall will include taqueria from Dai Due, concepts from Emmer & Rye, Contigo, Kome and more

The downtown food hall Fareground, which will be located on Congress Avenue between Cesar Chavez and Second streets, will feature some of the biggest names in Austin dining.

The space will include Easy Tiger, a taqueria from Dai Due, an all-day concept from Emmer & Rye and more, it was announced today.

The operation is being helmed by Easy Tiger owners Elm Restaurant Group and will have an outpost of Easy Tiger at the space that will also include Antonelli’s Cheese Shop’s second location and Contigo Fareground, which will find chef Andrew Wiseheart serving his ranch-inspired restaurant’s brand of Texas comfort food, including burgers and rotisserie chicken.

Jesse Griffith’s Dai Due Taquería will source hyper locally for its tacos, as part of a collaboration with chef Gabe Erales. Options will include tacos like venison suadero, wild boar chorizo, wild catfish and more. Easy Tiger will serve its trademark pretzels and sandwiches, along with offering two bars.

Henbit, the new cafe concept from Emmer & Rye, will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Honeybit will be a cart from Emmer & Rye partner and pastry chef Tavel Bristol that serves ice cream and sweets.

The team behind Kome and Daruma Ramen will roll out Ni-Kome, a hybrid ramen and sushi bar.
