Plans for Shuttered Restaurant LaV, Burn Pizza Is Closed, and More A.M. Intel

The latest six restaurant tidbits in Austin served right now

Nadia Chaudhury is the editor of Eater Austin covering food and pop culture, as well as a photographer, writer, and frequent panel moderator and podcast guest.

Statesman critic Matthew Odam checked in on what was happened with the building that housed former French-inspired restaurant LaV on East 7th Street. Original owner Ralph Eads sold the space to David Kahn, who is currently still looking for a local restaurant to lease the address.

— The tables are turned: the TABC is being investigated about whether the agency allowed the sale of drinks without a proper license during the National Conference of State Liquor Administrators held at the Radisson Hotel in Austin.

— This was Burn’s last weekend as a pizzeria before the space is transformed into pop-up dinner space/event venue/co-working spot/restaurant for guest chefs/bar/etc./etc.

Austin Monthly’s Best of issue is out, which includes categories like coffee shop (Fleet Coffee), bar trend (speakeasies like Small Victory and Red Headed Stepchild), breakfast (Paper), design (Eberly). Tied for best restaurant were Otoko and Emmer & Rye.

— Student Anna Hutto opened grilled cheese truck Melted with the goal of donating all of the profits to the International Justice Mission.

— Austin's most Instagrammed restaurant is Stubb's BBQ (being a concert venue probably doesn’t hurt, either).
