Traditional meets modern in this new age Caribbean restaurant, tucked away on the east side of Austin. Named after the Canje pheasant, national bird of Guyana, Canje pulls inspiration not just from mainland Guyana, but from Jamaica to Puerto Rico, and all the islands in between. The passion project of Guyanese native Chef Tavel Bristol-Joseph, Canje's menu explores the cooking techniques, ingredients, and many expressions of vibrant food across the entire region.
The space boasts a stunning bar, a robust cocktail program and fun wine list focusing on small producers, built to pair with Caribbean flavors.
Brought to you by Emmer & Rye Hospitality Group, Canje joins its sister restaurants in sourcing local produce and protein as much as possible, supporting local farms and drawing inspiration from the local growing seasons.
