The North End prepares to introduce Boston-style Italian cuisine to Bee Cave

A one-of-a-kind premium Italian concept that will make its much-anticipated debut in May

The North End prepares to introduce Boston-style Italian cuisine to Bee CaveAustin, Texas ( There’s arguably no better place in America to enjoy authentic Italian cuisine than Boston’s North End.

Starting in May, entrepreneur Chris Meroff will bring that experience to Austin-area diners with the launch of The north end.

Located at 12432, path to the bee caves at Bee Cave, the 3,600 square foot restaurant will transport guests to North Boston with mouth-watering Italian dishes prepared by Executive Chef Tim Lane. The upscale restaurant will also serve craft cocktails and a range of Boston and Austin craft beers.

Chef Lane spent nearly a decade honing his culinary craft in Rome, Italy, before returning to the United States with a dream of bringing classic Italian cuisine to Austin. He comes to The North End after leading the kitchens of popular Italian concepts like Asti Trattoria in Austin for the past few years.

“There’s nothing like The North End in all of Central Texas, and there’s no one I’d rather have run our kitchen than Chef Lane,” Meroff said. “The menu he is creating will include several signature pasta and seafood dishes he perfected during his time in Italy, all with a distinctly Boston twist. I look forward to opening the doors of this extraordinary concept to the Bee Cave community.”

Along with experiencing an upscale dining environment, guests will also be greeted by The Garden, a more casual dining atmosphere that features an array of beers, cocktails and fresh New England bites. Inspired by Boston’s public gardens, The Garden will feature lush greenery, a full bar, and indoor and outdoor seating. Guests can gather with friends and family to play games on the lawn and participate in seasonal events. The garden is set to open the same weekend as The North End in May.
