Houston native Bridget Dunlap helped transform downtown’s Rainey Street from an overlooked row of old houses into a thriving entertainment district.
The self-proclaimed Queen of Rainey St, became enamored with a bright and airy space in vibrant east Austin and knew right away she wanted to open a restaurant there, a departure from the bars she is known for.
As the wheels started turning on the still somewhat hazy idea, Bridget and her CFO and creative partner, Chris Parker, recruited the final, crucial member of the team, Chef Andrew Francisco, who brought to the team a passion for refined food with a touch of whimsy, international influences, and solid experience in nationally and locally acclaimed restaurants. Mettle's menus include Chef Francisco's playful riffs on bistro classics and extends to the bar with creative house cocktails.

See you there!
Marla, Michael and Derek
