The Luxury Now Closed, New Food and Bar Concept to Open in Its Place

Posted By on Wed, Jan 22, 2020 at 2:01 PM

Chef Andrew Weissman announced the closure of his popular fast-casual restaurant The Luxury on Tuesday.

According to Weissman, the move will allow him to focus on his growing restaurant group, which includes the addition of a mobile Sip Brew Bar and brick-and-mortar version of The Luxury at San Antonio International Airport.

The closure will also make way for a new concept, Elsewhere Garden Bar & Kitchen, which is slated to begin remodeling this spring. Led by entrepreneurs Terrin Fuhrmann and Nolan Ellis, Elsewhere will soon be filled with lush landscaping, a selection of brews and wine, and live music shows during happy hours.

"We want to transform the space to present this cool 'secret garden' [in] Tulum, Mexico type of vibe," Fuhrmann told the Current. "'Elsewhere' implies an experience."

The space will definitely be dog- and family-friendly, he added.

Though a menu has yet to be finalized, Elsewhere will continue The Luxury's legacy of fun, high-quality plates that can be easily shared.

Weissman opened The Luxury in 2013 with an elevated menu, offering items such as gourmet burgers and banh mi sandwiches in addition to beer and wine.
