Newly open to the Public, here is what to expect: 

Elevated Dining Experience

BOA Steakhouse, known for its luxurious ambiance and innovative menu, is bringing its unique spin on steakhouse favorites to the heart of Austin. The kitchen, led by the talented Chef James Flowers, will serve a variety of elevated dishes, from their signature 40-day dry-aged New York Strip to the exquisite A5 Japanese Wagyu. Chef Flowers, a long-time Austin resident with a rich culinary background, promises to deliver both BOA’s iconic dishes and new, Austin-exclusive creations.

Designed by Tag Front with architecture by Finn Wijanto Architects, the 8,000 square foot restaurant seats 185 guests in the main dining area, with an additional 50 seats in a private dining room. The interior features elegant elements like rift cut oak and blackened steel, gray felt ceiling fixtures, and lush tropical plants, creating a sophisticated yet inviting atmosphere.
