The Asian-influenced Deckhand Oyster Bar will open its second Austin-area location in the coming weeks. The restaurant owned by the Saybounkham family will fill the space of the former Outback Steakhouse at 4211 S. Lamar Blvd. in the Lakehills Plaza near Ben White Boulevard. The expansive menu includes an array of global flavors, from Thai (tom yum seafood soup), to Texas (crab-stuffed jalapenos), Japan (roe-topped oysters) and Louisiana (boudin). The restaurant is slated to open in the next three to four weeks.
