With charming shops, chic art galleries, and the stunning Palace Theatre, Georgetown’s historic town square is already an essential stop for any Central Texas road trip. Now there is one more reason to visit — a new location of chef Rob Snow’s popular farm-to-table eatery Greenhouse Craft Food.

On November 27, the restaurant debuted its second outpost at 708 S. Austin Ave., the former home of The Hollow. According to a release, the space will act as a flagship for the growing brand, offering favorites from the original menu, as well as dishes unavailable at the Round Rock restaurant.

Working with chef de cuisine Todd Engel, Snow added fresh Texas flavors to the lineup with a focus on smoke. Exclusive entrees include chicken legs with a sweet tea glaze and barbecue sauce; a meatloaf with gravy, fries, and mixed vegetables; and a cheese steak with brisket, poblano peppers, onions, mushrooms, provolone, and spicy mayo.

As they did in the original, the team sources from area farms as much as possible. That mission extends to the bar program, which features Texas craft beer, cider, and wine from brands like Austin Eastciders, Circle Brewing Co., Texas Beer Company, Duchman, and Fall Creek.

Appropriately, the 3,000-square-foot space also has Lone Star flair. The team kept the modern farmhouse vibe of the first Greenhouse, but replaced its apple green and red palette with mint and crisp white. Metal chair, murals, ultra-modern lighting fixtures, and a clever installation of craft paper rolls complete a homespun look that might make Joanna Gaines jealous.

Open for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch, Greenhouse joins 600 Degrees Pizzeria, El Monumento, Monument Cafe, Nancy’s Sky Garden, and Sweet Lemon Kitchen in making Georgetown one of the most unexpected dining destinations in Texas.
