Lauded California Restaurant’s Austin DinnerLegendary Berkeley restaurant Chez Panisse, known for defining California cuisine under Alice Waters, is coming to Austin for Jester King Brewery’s next supper club dinner. The dinner will feature five courses paired with beer and wine. It takes place on Thursday, November 14 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $195, which all proceeds going towards The Edible School Yard Project’s PEAS program.
A new restaurant is taking over the now-closed New York-styled tavern Gotham on 1700 East 2nd Street in the East Cesar Chavez neighborhood. Reunión 19 will be headed by Los Angeles chef Esdras Ochoa, who is most known for Los Angeles restaurants Mexicali Taco & Co. and alfresco Mexican restaurant Salazar. Reunión 19 is meant to be a casual restaurant, focusing on Mexican fare, tacos, and good cocktails, as Ochoa told Eater. It’s expected to open in January 2020.
also this is kind of telling of where/how austin is changing, at least when it comes to concert crowds. i went to an ACL taping recently, and there were these two women in front of us who kept talking loudly DURING the taping and taking cell phone photos .....
