Austin chef Bryce Gilmore gets the fancy-pants Eater National treatment today, talking with Eater Austin's motherblog about the Austin scene ("we've still got a long ways to go"), a new generation of farmers ("The future of farming seems promising") and why Barley Swine's so small ("I wanted a place where I could do what I wanted and have control").
But the big news is that the Odd Duck food trailer may soon be back in business. Gilmore says he's "looking to turn the [Odd Duck] trailer concept into a 100-seat restaurant." Food truck fiends rejoice, for the beloved farm-to-trailer spot will "be more rustic than Barley Swine, with lots of grilling and wood." Gilmore says it'll be "casual," with "not that much of a focus on plating and making it look nice." But don't start sharpening your forks and knives just yet, because Gilmore says "nothing is set yet, but we're exploring all of our options."
