Live-Fire American Grille Opens Second Location in Central Austin

CARVE American Grille is thrilled to announce the official grand opening of its newest location in Central Austin on Monday, June 12. This opening marks the second location for the concept, which first debuted in Austin’s Barton Creek neighborhood in December 2019. CARVE Central Austin is located at the dynamic mixed-use community The Grove at 2613 Perseverance Drive.

The chef-driven concept by renowned restaurateur Chris Perry reinvents the American grille experience by carrying on the legacy of the original butcher shop Perry’s father founded in 1979 and utilizing live-fire, smoke and wood grilling techniques within its menu. Pulling inspiration from the restaurateur’s sister concept Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille, CARVE’s culinary programming and approach transforms fresh, high-quality ingredients into memorable experiences for lunch, brunch, dinner and happy hour. Perry leads the culinary team with master development chef Rick Moonen to deliver an innovative selection of modernized comfort dishes including Wagyu Meatloaf Cupcakes and a Long Bone Chicken-fried Pork Chop, both featured on the Food Network and Cooking Channel in 2021.
