Restaurant Workers Are Sick and Tired of Asking Politely

As the highly infectious delta variant of the coronavirus surged this summer, Texans dug through their dresser drawers and glove compartments to find those discarded masks—or they didn’t. In the past few months, the divide between pro- and anti-maskers has become even more entrenched and political, and the emotions are playing out vociferously in the hospitality industry. Nineteen months into a pandemic, when many of us have long since resumed activities such as dining out, it’s easy to forget that restaurant and bar workers still find themselves on the front lines.

Wine Bars in Austin that have Distinct Atmosphere and Food Along with Wine

I'm giving another shout out to Wine Belly,Tapas and Wine, the place on Oltorf that I mentioned in my "Best Breakfasts in Austin" post. You can tell by the name that wine is Wine Belly's stock in trade. It's been named one of "Top Wine Bars in the US" by Food and Wine magazine, and one of the "Top 20 Wine Bars in America" by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Add in the amazing food, such as lobster grits, and Wine Belly has my vote. I was there for brunch on a Sunday and the ambience was as relaxing as the food was interesting and delicious. Food served at Wine Belly has Spanish and Mediterranean influences.

Keep Austin Local: Teal House Coffee and Bakery

AUSTIN, Texas — KVUE wants to help “Keep Austin Local” by highlighting the local businesses, events and people that make Austin special. On Monday, KVUE stopped by Teal House Coffee and Bakery. The shop started in 2016 out of husband-wife duo Lance and Andy Phillip’s home. The couple started selling cinnamon rolls to their neighbors on Father’s Day weekend. Then, they scaled to a food truck. They still have a trailer, but also have a store front.

Dry Creek Cafe, an Old-school Dive Bar on Lake Austin, Is Closing After 68 Years

Calling all dive bar enthusiasts! Sadly, it appears that the final last call at Austin’s beloved Dry Creek Cafe & Boat Dock is nigh. The historic and ever-rickety cash-only dive, which has peacefully sat on the backside of Austin’s Mount Bonnell since that part of town was considered the city’s outskirts, is set to shut down at the end of October. Barring a miracle, there’s a “99 percent chance” that October 31 will be the last night in business, bar manager Elly Barksdale tells Texas Monthly. “We’re surrounded by multimillion-dollar homes, and we don’t have foot traffic,” she says. “The profitability just isn’t there.”

We Be Grubbin: Soulciti Visits Down South Cajjun Eats

Jahmaal & Jermaine Dumes set out to make a name for themselves on the Austin food scene, and they’ve done just that. It all started with crawfish. The Beaumont natives grew up on Louisiana-style food, thanks to their family’s roots in the Pelican State. And there’s arguably nothing more Louisiana than crawfish. But when they landed in Austin for college (the brothers both attended Southwestern University in Georgetown), they had a hard time finding crawfish that was done “right,” so they took matters into their own hands. They started out doing pop-ups, brunches, Friday night fish frys, crawfish boils on Saturday and Sundays at Spinners, and other events around the city.
