TLV

Fareground food court 86’ed Easy Tiger and Antonelli’s stalls earlier this year, adding TLV and an offshoot of rustic Italian restaurant Italic to existing Ni-Komé (Komé Sushi/Daruma Ramen mash-up), Contigo (satellite location with rotisserie chicken), Henbit (Emmer & Rye’s little sister), and Dai Due Taqueria. At the bite-worthy distillation of chef-author-hunter Jesse Griffith’s cooking-as-ecological-responsibility ethos, guests enjoy traditional al pastor, guisada, and tinga while supporting lesser-known Texan producers. Yes, the boar is from Austin’s backyard, deliberately elevated to suit the people’s taco needs. TLV showcases Chef Berty’s iteration of Israeli street food – something this town needs more of – with hummus in a lead role, supported by a cast of pillowy pita, Balkan pastries, filled Israeli donuts, and Turkish breakfast. No matter the time of day, you need that tahini milkshake in your life.
