    DipDipDip Pop-Up

    GQ Magazine may have named them one of 2020's best new restaurants, and our own Jessi Cape has fairly raved about the eatery's brilliance, but that damned coronavirus put a stop to – well, hold on now. Look: Tatsu Aikawa's most celebrated venue flips a finger to pathogens everywhere and re-opens with a to-go menu featuring new dipping sandwiches (crafted with meats that are charred on a binchōtan grill, slow-cooked and thinly sliced) with a choice of dip, plus artisanal ice cream (Cookies 'n Matcha and Yuzu Mascarpone, for instance), and we're like, "OMG, yesssss!"

    Food News

    So glad to note that Vic and Al's, the lifesaving community kitchen from culinary champion Nic Patrizi, is expanding for regular take-out service on Fri., May 22, initially featuring nightly dinner specials (available online and for call-ahead orders); then, "in a couple weeks," they'll debut a Quick Menu for lunch and dinner service. Counter Culture, that vegan vision of hope and amazingly tasty noms on the Eastside, returns with pickup and delivery options, having ditched the "2.13 + tips" model to pay all their workers a decent wage.More carnivorously, Salt & Time Butcher Shop is preparing to debut a smart new carry-out cafe, with sandwiches and coffee and more, in Republic Square in the heart of Downtown, and we'll let you know as soon as they're good to go.LORO, the famed Asian-style smokehouse already on top of the plaguetime pickup and delivery game, is now open for limited in-restaurant seating with 1) mouthwatering food and 2) extra safety procedures in place.And while Barton Springs Road stalwart Shady Grove has shuttered for good, and the Lucy's Fried Chicken location on Lake Travis is now defunct, the pretty much omnipresent Juiceland is re-opening five more shops for carryout and adding walk-up windows to all of its locations. Helluva juicy pivot, there, people – with all the vital fluids we need.
