Breakfast Tacos for Dinner
Austin’s best taco truck and restaurant Veracruz All Natural is expanding into dinner service at its brick-and-mortar up in North Shoal Creek. The same menu will be available — think migas tacos, picadas, chilaquiles — along with a brand new tostadas, like cauliflower and chicken. The restaurant will be open until 9 p.m. every evening starting on Monday, February 4.
Historic Landmark Tex-Mex Restaurant
The longtime Tex-Mex restaurant Cisco’s and its building on East Sixth Street received its historic landmark status as of this week, because of its earlier architecture, political significance, and importance to the community.
The winner of this year’s sommelier competition Somms Under Fire, where participants have to pair wine with food, is import and brokerage company SAmandla Wine Imports’ Phil Laramore (Littleton, Colorado). Advanced sommelier and Hakkasan Group training director Kathleen Thomas (Las Vegas) won the fan favorite award. Dishes were prepared by Austin restaurants Salt & Time and Trace, as well as a cheese plate from Antonelli’s Cheese Shop.
