— So there’s now an Austin-inspired food hall in New York City. The downtown Brooklyn food hall, Hill Country Food Park, is from owners Marc Glosserman and Kristen Glosserman, who are also behind barbecue restaurant and fried chicken restaurants Hill Country. The Glossermans visited Texas often for research (Eater NY reports that they dined at over 30 restaurants within 48 hours).
Hill Country Food Park features a breakfast kiosk named South Congress with coffee, doughnuts, and breakfast tacos from King David Tacos; a pizza stand named Austino’s, a “Mex-Tex” stall with tamales, burgers and margaritas, as well as the namesake barbecue and fried chicken spots (the former serves Kreuz Market sausages)
— Round Rock restaurant Greenhouse Craft Food opened its Georgetown location this week. The flagship restaurant from executive chef and owner Rob Snow and chef de cuisine Todd Engel will feature a similar menu, as well as newer dishes like crispy smoked ribs, brisket enchiladas, and brisket sandwiches. It’s found on 708 South Austin Avenue, which had been fine dining restaurant the Hollow.
