VIP ticketholders will get a pop-up experience hosted by Juniper, chef Nicholas Yanes. Tables for the May 11 event at the Barr Mansion can be purchased here.
Central Standard, the subject of this week’s Chronicle restaurant review, is now open for lunch on weekdays between 11am-3pm. The menu features a French dip sandwich, pan roasted chicken, gulf oyster soup, and other classics from chef Michael Paley.
Jack Gilmore and Tom Kamm, the team behind perennial favorite Jack Allen’s Kitchen, is debuting a new concept in Round Rock. Salt Traders Coastal Cooking will feature approachable cuisine form Gilmore and Chef Chris Ten Eyck, a fresh beverage program from David Toby, and a interiors from LEVY Architects.
Like Kick-Ass actor Chloë Grace Moritz and lippy Kardashian Kylie Jenner, Cafe Josie is was born in 1997. To celebrate their last year as a teen, the restaurant will be handing out slices of birthday cake and bubbles to all guests who dine with them this Friday, March 4. Chef Todd Havers will also be making his popular baby back ribs. Singing the Chili’s jingle is probably discouraged.
Gardner’s last service is March 12 (sad face emoji, crying emoji, weird gloomy cloud emoji), but owners Ben Edgerton and Andrew Wiseheart will be ushering in their new concept, Chicon, by offering $25 in food at that eatery to dinner guests and a free Chicon drink to happy hour guests to diners eating at Gardner one more time. If you want to take a piece of the Scandinavian minimalist design home, the restaurant is also selling furniture, lighting, and wall hangings through an Etsy shop. Sorry, the Keith Kreeger pitchers are already sold out.
