Hillside Farmacy

Designer Mickie Spencer, chef Sonya Coté, and co-owners/operating partners Jade Place-Mathews and Greg Mathews renovated this historic East Austin building and then named the restaurant in an homage to the original tenant, Austin's first African-American pharmacist. These days, the place serves up oysters and locally sourced, farm-to-table fare, and is all the rage with hipster foodies. – Virginia B. Wood
