We’re patiently waiting on the opening of Sputnik Burgers in the old Good Knight location on East 6th St.
This is the latest business venture of local tycoon Randall Stockton whose holdings rival those of the operators of the King Ranch in South Texas. He’s taking over.
The Good Knight went softly into the gloaming a month or so ago and left a giant hole in the East Austin fine dining scene [what there is of it].
We mourned its passing here: http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2011/6/23/RIP-The-Good-Knight-Randall-Stocktons-Speakeasy-Is-No-More and have been waiting with bated breath to see what the new tenant of the old building would be.
The wait is over but there is plenty mystery concerning Sputnik Burgers.
We pondered what the tenor of the new restaurant would be here http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2011/8/11/Dont-Call-It-A-Comeback-Randall-Stocktons-Back-In-The-Game-With-Sputnik and we remain in the dark.
It’s going to be interesting to walk inside East Austin’s newest burger joint and see the transformation of the room that held one of the coolest restaurants in recent Austin history.
