A taste of new york city in the heart of east austin



Gotham is a casual restaurant and bar located at 2nd Street and Chalmers. We’re close to the nightlife of East 6th and Caesar Chavez, just a few blocks from I-35, and we have a big, beautiful free parking lot. We serve dinner and weekend brunch, and we have a great Happy Hour from Tuesday through Saturday. We'll be opening for lunch in the near future.

Our menu is inspired by the taverns, pubs, cafes, and delis of New York City. That means delicious housemade pastrami and smoked salmon, fresh housemade pasta, Neapolitan-style pizza from our wood-burning oven, Connecticut Blue Point oysters on the half-shell, steak-frites, grilled pork chops, burgers, and more.

Gotham is owned and operated by Nick and Jessica Goulding, who also own beloved Southwest Austin neighborhood spot Cafe Malta. Nick and Jessica met in New York City and lived there before moving to Austin in 2004. Gotham is Nick’s tribute to the great old establishments where he spent so many hours from age 18 to 34.

Feel free to make a reservation, but don’t hesitate to drop by without one — we keep a lot of tables available for walk-ins. And if you’re driving, relax. We’ve got that big parking lot and plenty of free street parking.

See you soon!
