Chef Paul Hargrove, who left the W Hotel's TRACE back in April, has moved on to the East Side ... Show Room. Via the ESSR's Facebook page: "paul hargrove from trace has joined forces with sonya cote to bring you even more local fare." Eater Austin e-mailed Hargrove for comment, and he writes back:
I will be overseeing day to day operations of the kitchen there starting next month and collaborating with Sonya on new menu ideas and specials. Also, I am developing a line of charcuterie and provision items that will be sold at select locations around town.For her part, Coté tells Eater Austin she's "super excited" and that she and Hargrove "work really well together."
