    It may still be blisteringly hot, but fall is a-comin', and with it comes some of Austin's most exciting restaurant openings. While August used to be a quiet month, late summer has already seen the premieres of Rainey Street's NO VAand Manor's School House Pub. Rainey and Manor will see more major openings before the year is up, though not as many as South Lamar and Burnet Road. Burnet's riches include a new branch of Noble Sandwich Co., while South Lamar will get an East Side King and the long-awaited brick-and-mortarOdd Duck. Check out Eater's full list below the cut.

    Austin's Most Anticipated Fall Restaurant Openings


    Now that fall is here, Austinites are warming to their autumn finery, bundling up in actual shoes instead of flip-flops. It's time to drive with the windows down, maybe if it's barely tolerable outside, to the city's most anticipated restaurants set to open in the next few months. Here's Eater Austin's lowdown on what's going in where.

     what's going in where.

    eskmuralroundup.jpgCampus: East Side King at Hole In The Wall
    Address: 2538 Guadalupe Street
    Major Players: Paul Qui
    The Situation: Top Chefwinner Paul Qui, formerly of Uchiko, has all kinds of crazy plans for new Austin restaurants coming up, and the first of these is his brick-and-mortar location of his East Side King food truck at the Hole In The Wall bar near the University of Texas campus. 
    Projected Opening: Late September/Early October

    Address: 1417 South First Street
    Major Players: Rene Ortiz, Jesse Herman
    The Situation: The team behind La Condesa, chef Rene Ortiz and restaurateur Jesse Herman, are going east for their new project, Sway. It's an Australian-influenced Thai place with an open kitchen, spirit garden and option for diners to eat a family-style pig roast feast.
    Projected Opening: Early fall

    Address: 2500 Hoppe Trail
    Major Players: Jack Gilmore
    The Situation: Chef Jack Gilmore's Jack Allen's Kitchen on the southwest side of town is a huge draw for locals who love upscale comfort food in an Austin-casual atmosphere. With the advent of his second location in Round Rock, Gilmore make things that much easier on north side gas budgets.
    Projected Opening: September

    Address: 4729 Burnet Road
    Major Players: Joe Mohrfeld, brewmaster
    The Situation: Austin is crazy for craft breweries, and Pinthouse Pizza promises expertly made beers from seasoned brewer Joe Mohrfeld, formerly of Colorado's Odell Brewing Company, plus steamy pies and slices.
    Projected Opening: Late Fall

    restaurant-jezebelmockup.jpgDowntown: Restaurant Jezebel/Bar Mirabeau
    Address: 800 W. Sixth Street
    Major Players: Parind Vora
    The Situation: Chef Parind Vora's original incarnation of the beloved Restaurant Jezebel burned in the summer of 2010, taking its four-star rating with it. Now, Vora's back with a revamped restaurant in a new location, with a secondary outfit attached: Bar Mirabeau. 
    Projected Opening: September for Bar Mirabeau, October for Restaurant Jezebel
