If you need a breakfast sandwich, a scoop of gelato, a glass of wine and a charcuterie board or toilet paper and aluminum foil, you’ll find it all at a new specialty grocery store and all day cafe on South Lamar in the Lamar Union building.
Artista Rosso opened earlier this month at 1100 S Lamar Blvd. with a full-service grocery market, including paper goods, fresh baked items, grab-and-go meals, olives, cheese, charcuterie, wine and even a bar for gelato, nutella and cannoli.
On the coffee shop side, you’ll find a selection of espresso and pour-over coffees, as well as teas. The store also includes a restaurant that will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with tacos, pasta, sandwiches and other appetizers and entrees.
The grocery store is open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 7 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday and 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday. The restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.
On Sept. 8, the store is hosting a grand opening celebration from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with tastings, live music and a free appetizer with the purchase of a beer or wine, with proceeds from the day benefiting Austin Pets Alive.
