Trudy's Del Mar
Longtime Austin restaurant company Trudy's made a completely different splash in the local restaurant scene when it recently premiered its new Trudy’s Del Mar seafood concept. Located in the alluring space that formerly housed South Congress Cafe, Trudy’s Del Mar, aka the “Tex-Mex of the sea,” features a menu of seafood specialties inspired by traditional coastal Mexican recipes, including lobster tacos, seared fish smothered in Veracruz sauce, and the bountiful Del Mar Grill, with shrimp diablos, lobster tail, and steak fajitas. Small plates like crab cakes and crispy calamari, as well as ceviche and crudos, round out the menu. And it is a spinoff of Trudy’s after all, so of course you can still get an excellent margarita or martini.
