Chavez, chef Shawn Cirkiel's new restaurant in the Radisson, hosted a media preview party last night, and the internet is blowing up with sneak peeks. The Austin Business Journal has posted an entire slideshow of somewhat-blurry photos that show elegant light fixtures, a large bar, and some impressive sunset lake views. Writer Jan Buchholz raves about the transformation architect Michael Hsu worked on the former TGI Friday's space.

There's no official opening date yet, and the restaurant is still waiting on some final furnishings to be delivered. Eater contributor Tom Thornton has provided some photos of the menu, and plenty more media folks tweeted out photos, opening rumors, and other observations. Eater rounds up the best of them below.
