As low-key and young that Austin is, it still has its higher end nooks, even if they’re disguised by the flat houses of Rainey Street or hidden away behind downtown. And even if they are billed as higher-end, they still emit a (mostly) unstuffy vibe where diners can walk in and eat in shorts and an American flag sweatshirt…oh wait, that was just me.
Now, I’m all about my hole-in-the-walls, but it’s fun to eat a little fancy now and then, nahmsayin? As it were, a pastry chef I used to work for spins some seriously amazing desserts in Austin now, and of course I had to see her in action. The food at her restaurant is other-worldly, and the drinks are a must-have. I’ll leave y’all with some photos of our dinner that left me too full to do anything afterwards but sleeeeeep.
While I love traveling and visiting old and new friends in new places, there’s really nothing as fresh as the bay. But Austin, you aight.
Keeping it weird.
