    Food Access Resources from SFC

    We have to admit it's getter better, but we've still got a ways to go in dealing with this pandemic. The Sustainable Food Center has put together a thorough compilation of food access resources for Central Texans, ranging from farmers' markets to CSAs to delivery options and everything in between, so you can ensure that healthy food stays on your table. And if you're able to contribute they're accepting online donations, which support farmers and low-income families facing food insecurity. Get all the details on their website.

    Food News Buffet

    Bowled over with bread, lately, but still missing those soupy bread bowls at Gourmands? Hang on, citizen – the patio of that bastion of culinary goodness is now open for private party reservations, even while takeout and delivery continues. And the same situation is true of Downtown's popular and vodka-friendly Russian House, even though they're still refusing (no matter how often we nag them) to name any menu item "Ballroom Blintz."Meanwhile, on West Sixth, the Key Bar welcomes a six-month pop-up from the Eastside's agave-mongering La Holly – featuring more tequila, mezcal, et cetera than you can shake a succulent at – accompanied by those Mexico City-inflected noms from the Taco Flats food truck.And, no, the apple-forward savants of Eastciders aren't abandoning their elegant Collaboratory tap room on Springdale; but they're currently revamping the former Uncle Billy's Smokehouse on Barton Springs Road, turning the joint into Austin Eastciders BS – replete with wine, cocktails, coffees, limited-edition small-batch ciders (fermented on-site, no less), and a full menu of noms. (It's maybe because we have a bit of a foodie crush on chef Page Pressley that we feel compelled to mention: He's the man behind the new menu that'll feature cider-brined cured meats, pizzas, sandwiches, and salads.): Hey, you a Nutella fan? You know – that chocolatey hazelnut spread that's really popular in Europe? It's kind of like peanut butter, but it's made with, well, hazelnuts instead? Then you'll be stoked to know that Dolce Neve, those celebrated purveyors of traditional Italian gelato, have begun making and selling a jarred hazelnut spread. Yeah: An artisanal Nutella sort of treat! And now it's available at Sour Duck Market, too.: Also, the popular Uncle Nicky's and Juniper restaurants? They're among the Austin venues (see also El Alma, LORO, and more) giving that 50% capacity thing a go, and we'll be watching to see how that turns out.
