Amateur Gourmet Goes Austin

New, 3 comments

elizstcafe150.jpgAdam "The Amateur Gourmet" Roberts, author of Secrets of the Best Chefs, found himself stranded in Austin thanks to Frankenstorm Sandy and ate his way through the days-long delay. A selection of his stops: Barley Swine (where he ate "okra through the looking glass, okra on L.S.D."), Counter Cafe, Takoba and the "surprising" Elizabeth Street Cafe, where he ordered curry that was "not at all horrible."
