Restaurant builder par excellence Frank Seely garners our kudos for his skills in turning a plain American sow's ear, CoCo's at Shoal Creek & Anderson Lane, into a very classy Chinese silk purse, Suzi's China Grill. Seely and restaurateur Suzi Yi chose a subtle, non-traditional Chinese decor for her second Austin location. The interior features sponge-painted walls in soothing greens and muted golds, forest green booths and chair seats with black tables, a stained concrete floor and an open kitchen revealing a row of blazing woks. No vestige of the generic former chain restaurant remains.
