Odd Duck: A Great Place for a Date or to Catch Up with a Friend

Odd Duck was one of the most popular and successful food trailers in Austin during the food truck boom of 2010 to early 2012. It was one of the stops on the Tasty Up Food Trailer Tour that Addie Broyles and I hosted in 2010. Chef Bryce Gilmore closed Odd Duck to focus on his first brick-and mortar restaurant – Barley Swine.

In December, he along with partners Sam Hellman-Mass (chef), Jason James (bar and front-of-house), Mark Buley (chef and bread program), and Dylan Gilmore (brother and business manager) opened Odd Duck …

Austin’s Meatiest Food News and Events

It’s rare that I do an events/newsy post, I usually post information about upcoming events I think are cool in my Facebook group, but there is so much cool stuff happening over the next few weeks that I felt it was time for a roundup.
Apologies in advance to any vegans or vegetarians in the group, for some reason, there’s lots of flesh-eating events coming up over the next few weeks.
Without further ado, here’s what’s on my radar for Austin food lovers:

Monument Cafe and Market in Georgetown

Georgetown, Texas seems so far away in my mind — and it’s only a 1/2 hour drive from our house. And because a total of an hour in the car seems like such a schlep now that I don’t live in the gridlocked east coast, it took me more than a year to visit the Monument Cafe since I’d added it to my list of restaurants to check out.
This spring, the PR firm that represents Monument Cafe invited me to come meet the owner and take a tour, so Adam …

Tasty Tuesdays: Best Austin Grocery Store

Austin is kind of a grocery store mecca. Just consider that:

Whole Foods Market started in Austin almost 30 years ago — and is home to the corporate headquarters and flagship store.
Central Market opened it’s first store here — on North Lamar in 1994.
Wheatsville Co-op is the only retail consumer food co-op in Texas and its right here in Austin!

Others in town include HEB, Randalls, Fiesta, Royal Blue Grocery, Asia Market, Fresh Plus, MT Supermarket, Newflower, Sprouts, Sun Harvest, and more.
Last week alone, I visited the Triangle Farmers Market, Central Market, …

Take your Veggies to the Chevy

I generally try not to mix business with pleasure on this blog, and most of my business doesn’t happen in Austin. It generally takes place on an hour-long conference call  with clients in other time zones, via e-mail chains, and at occasional out-of-town meetings.
The weekend before last, I happily mixed the two parts of my life on a road trip from Capitol Chevrolet down to the Pearl Farmer’s Market in San Antonio with a group of local food bloggers. Below is a slightly edited version of a blog I wrote …
