Contigo - Ben Edgerton & Andrew Wiseheart, owners of Contigo Austin, spoke about their restaurant across Anchor Lane from Mueller. Ben is the general manager and Andrew is the executive chef. They are working to create community, facilitated through good food, drinks, and hospitality. Training started last night. Grand opening is May 7.

The menu is described as fresh, quality bar food. They’ll have a small plates section on the menu. Andrew is also interested in charcuterie (cured meats) and they’ll have a few sausages on the menu. They’ll also have a couple of salads and several vegetarian items. They get their chicken and beef from 2 farms in Fredericksburg.

They’ll have 12 beers on tap with some of them being local beers. They’ll have a limited, but well-executed cocktail list.

About 75% of their seating is outside. About 1/2 is covered and most is in shade due to site orientation. They are working to get a bike rack installed.

Hours will be 4pm - midnight M-F, noon - 1:00 a.m. on Saturday, and noon - midnight on Sunday.

Address is 2027 Anchor Lane. See for more information. Ben’s family owns/operates Contigo Ranch in South Texas. He’s bringing some of that to Austin.
