True Food Kitchen is adding a second Austin location.

The restaurant chain, co-founded by author Dr. Andrew Weil and restaurateur Sam Fox and known for its menu featuring an array of seasonal healthy dishes, will open a location at The Domain late this year.

It will join a location in the Seaholm development in downtown Austin that opened in 2016.

At The Domain, True Food Kitchen will take over the space in Domain I formerly occupied by Blackfinn Ameripub, at 11410 Century Oaks Terrace, between Neiman Marcus and Macy’s.

“True Food Kitchen will be a terrific addition to The Domain’s already impressive retail and dining lineup,” Lauren Krumlauf, the center’s director of marketing and business development, said in a written statement. “Austin residents and tourists who appreciate well-prepared, wholesome dishes and incredible hospitality will enjoy True Food Kitchen as the restaurant is well-known for both.”

Founded in 2008, True Food Kitchen now has 21 locations.

Longtime Austin chef Raymond Tatum has moved his comfort-food-with-an-Asian-twist trailer, Three Little Pigs, from the now-shuttered East End Wines to the Aristocrat Lounge (6507 Burnet Rd.) Fitting that a chef with such a long and colorful history in the Austin restaurant scene (including Jeffrey’s and Backstage Steakhouse) would open on the lot of the former Poodle Dog Lounge. Three Little Pigs is open Tuesday-Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
