Gardner: Contigo Owners’ New Garden Concept

Well this is exciting! Contigo owners Ben Edgerton and Andrew Wiseheart just announced that their second restaurant, Gardner, is set to open in East Austin later this year.

Taking their new venture in an unexpected direction, Gardner is set to boast a “refined dinner menu with a focus on seasonal vegetables.” It will be located on East Sixth Street and also feature beer, wine and cocktails. Fun fact? It’s named after Chef Andrew Wiseheart’s father, Gardner Wiseheart.

Our goal is to provide a unique experience to all of our guests,” Edgerton said. “Many of our most popular menu items at Contigo are the vegetable dishes Andrew has created, and Gardner will allow for an elevated dining experience focused on vegetables.

We can’t wait!
