Chef Colter Peck, Chris Arial, and Allan Bautista, who met while working at Two Hands on Music Lane, have opened a casual fine dining restaurant Elementary. They said, “Elementary is named for its childlike curiosity, constant education, and fun.” The menu, inspired by Central Texas farmers and seasonality, features a global cuisine. Their cocktails are as fun as the concept, with a standout being the Eggo-spresso martini made with Tito’s Vodka and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal milk!

Next door they’ve opened Hopscotch, a wine and cocktail bar with only 15 seats. The small food menu consistently changes due to Hopscotch using ingredients from Elementary as a creative opportunity for sustainability and no waste. It’s great for a lite bite or to hop over to for happy hour.

Elementary is open seven days a week 5 pm - 10 pm and located at 2026 S. Lamar Blvd. Austin, TX 78704. Reservations can be made through Resy. Follow on Instagram at @elementaryatx.
