Elizabeth Street Cafe is the next Austin restaurant to get the cookbook treatment, as reported by Publishers Marketplace, so everyone can learn how to make the cafe’s pho and banh mi, along with the bakery’s croissants and macarons. The stylish Vietnamese dining spot’s book will be published by Phaidon. Larry McGuire and chef Tom Moorman will be joined by co-writer Julia Turshen. She’s worked on many cookbooks including Hot Bread Kitchen, Buvette, and Gwyneth Paltrow's It's All Good. This is McGuire Moorman Hospitality Group’s first cookbook.
The group isn't keeping still. McGuire and Moorman, along with beverage director June Rodil, are working on the opening of their seventh restaurant, June’s, on South Congress. It’s set to become a neighborhood joint with a heavy wine focus thanks to Rodil’s skills. There are also impending and unknown restaurants in downtown hotel and residential building Austin Proper. The group also oversees upscale barbecue joint Lambert's, Jeffrey's, Josephine House, and both seafood focused Perla's and Clark's.
