Ran down to John Mueller Barbecue the other day for a brisket lunch and made this photo of a row of briskets slowly smoking over Texas oak wood. Food was typically great with a big pork chop surprisingly stealing the show. Bouldin Creek is exploding with Elizabeth Street Cafe, Gourdough’s moving in, new owners of La Reyna, Takoba setting up shop as El Tacorrido, the best coffee in Austin vended from Once Over Coffee Bar and a new Thai restaurant from the La Condesa folks in the works.
Would that all neighborhoods had it so good.
