EurAsia Sushi Bar & Seafood Celebrates Grand Opening in Austin’s Oak Hill

Posted by on May 8, 2017 in News, Openings, Reviews

We told you last week that EurAsia Sushi Bar & Seafood had opened at the Y in Oak Hill. I had the chance to attend the grand opening on May 4th and it was so much more than the usual pomp and circumstance one sees at these things. There was genuine warmth among the guests […]

Bullfight – celebrating Spanish food, drink and Culture

Posted by on May 1, 2017 in Reviews

I have long enjoyed dining at Shawn Cirkiel’s various restaurants: from his first, Jean Luc’s Bistro, to Bullfight, one of his more recent. Shawn is a creative chef and he’s adventurous. In my book that’s an excellent combination. And that brings us to the Spanish-styled Bullfight at 4807 Airport Blvd. I cannot say that I […]

First Bites at Citizen Eatery Locally Sourced Vegetarian Restaurant

Posted by on Apr 24, 2017 in Healthy Dining, Reviews, Vegetarian

This is not a full review, but I was so impressed with Citizen Eatery on Burnet that I had to share this with you. This is a family owned business featuring vegetarian food. No, nothing as extreme at the former Beets on W. 5th but good, rib-sticking fare. I loved the Citizen Scramble, a rich, irresistible […]

Cannon and Belle – Farm to Table Fare at the downtown Austin Hilton

Posted by on Apr 20, 2017 in Reviews

If you haven’t been to the downtown Hilton lately, you might be surprised next time you go. The food scene has changed dramatically. Liberty Tavern is gone, as is Finn & Porter. The bar upstairs from these two has expanded exponentially to house the restaurant that has replaced Finn & Porter as well as the […]

Hao-Q Asian Kitchen: Inspired Chinese And Vietnamese Dining with a Family Flair

Posted by on Apr 2, 2017 in Asian, Chinese, Reviews, Vietnamese

The beauty of Hao-Q Asian Kitchen is extensive: from the lovely and gregarious Hong who works the front of the restaurant to her husband, the amiable and very talented chef Young who produces the varieties of Chinese and Vietnamese cuisine that tend to keep this restaurant located at 3742 Far West Blvd. more crowded than […]

Mo Pittle’s JewBoy Burgers: A cross-cultural Austin food trailer experience

Posted by on Mar 24, 2017 in Reviews

Mo Pittle is a welcome addition to the Austin food community. He has travelled many paths from his home in El Paso to his new JewBoy Burgers burger/sandwich trailer at 1606 E. 6th St. Some may find the name of his food trailer offensive, but Pittle says the origin of the name was quite simple. He […]

Cuba512 Cuban Cuisine: A Taste of Havana in South Austin

Posted by on Mar 18, 2017 in Reviews

I have always enjoyed authentic Cuban cuisine but unfortunately Austin is not a hotbed of our southern neighbor’s island cuisine. And then I got an email post talking about the name change of a restaurant called Guantanamera to Cuba512 on Westgate. I’d somehow overlooked the first iteration of this spot. I wasn’t about to miss […]

Café Blue Classic Seafood & Oyster Bar, Downtown Austin location

Posted by on Mar 7, 2017 in Reviews

I have long been a fan of Café Blue Classic Seafood & Oyster Bar, the fine seafood restaurant that had its beginnings above a cove near Volente Beach, then moved to more elegant digs at the Galleria at Bee Cave, and has now opened a second location downtown on 2nd St. next to Fleming’s. This […]

Evangeline Café

Posted by on Feb 25, 2017 in Reviews

Don’t ever tell a die-hard Cajun that Evangeline Bellefontaine was a fictional character in a Henry Wadsworth Longfellow epic poem. Fictional or otherwise, she is much cherished in Cajun culture. So it’s not surprising that more than a few Cajun restaurants are named for her. We have one here in Austin called Evangeline Cafe on […]

Trattoria Toscano Review

Posted by on Feb 16, 2017 in Reviews

The astonishing change in the Lakeway landscape continues with the gigantic HEB and dozens of retail establishments, including a number of restaurants that spread out to the east off Highway 620. Trattoria Toscano is one of the newer restaurants on this landscape. Owned by Stan Adams, the man who finally gave Austin a decent pizza […]
