    Andiamo Ristorante: Private Dining Rooms Available

    Reckon, if you're going to dine out, this private room deal (10 people minimum, 18 maximum) is among the safer options in town. It's $50 per person ($25 more gets you wine pairings), and the food'll be great, because – well, Andiamo, right? Listen: fried ravioli; tropical salad; fettucine with saffron, shrimp, scallions, and asparagus; a trio of beef, duck, and lamb with balsamic mint sauce; and, for dessert, panna cotta. Need we add, mmmmmmmmm?

    Bao'd Up: The Chickens of July

    This local chain of succulent Chinese goodness has extended July 6th's National Fried Chicken Day celebration through the entire month. Yes, succulent: "We marinate each chicken thigh for four hours using a secret family recipe handed down over several generations," says Ting Li, the eatery's executive chef. "I can't tell you everything that's in it, but some of the key ingredients are Szechuan chili, Chinese cinnamon, star anise, and clove." So you can get that, plus two pan-seared buns, a side of Szechuan fries with spicy mayo, and a side of fresh coleslaw for just under ten bucks, at all four Bao'd Up locations, until August comes busting in.
    Through July 31

If you have been affected by the impact of Covid-19 or are having a hard time, we would like to make a small portion of your day a little bit better." Or, if you'd like to donate your time in driving, baking treats, or providing cases of non-alcoholic beverages, please reach out to redbeansaustin@gmail.com.
