"...Though the Paggi House (200 Lee Barton Dr.) and Garrido's (360 Nueces) are going out of business for very different reasons and neither restaurant has failed, their closings demonstrate the rapid state of transition in the local restaurant scene...."
"...Despite the chill in the air, we assembled on the beautiful creekside patio at Garrido's and enjoyed a light starter of crispy tortilla chips and creamy white queso...."
"...The projects are also filling their ground-floor retail spaces. The 360's are leased to locally opened cafes, the soon-to-open Garrido's restaurant, an art gallery, and a Blue Star grocery; one 13,000-plus-square-foot space now is for sale for close to $5 million..."
"...Congratulations to UT baseball Head Coach Augie Garrido for picking up his 500th win as the Longhorns head coach in a 5-3 victory yesterday against the Texas State Bobcats. Garrido's record at UT is a more-than-impressive 500-241-1..."
"...Of course, it's natural that the Prelogs would want to put their own stamp on the place, especially since it housed a popular restaurant with another chef's name and an entirely different concept. Garrido's, the former occupant, tailored the space to Shoal Creek, keeping the warm interior neutral and textural..."

"...The casting directors from Chopped really must have liked what they saw in Austin last year. Hudson's on the Bend (3519 RR 620 N) sous chef McCaily Cranna competed last month, Angela Majko is up tonight, and we hear none other than David Garrido, chef/owner of the newly refurbished Garrido's (360 Nueces, #10) is scheduled to appear sometime in June..."
"...Turns out both vegetables grow well here, and savvy farmers such as Carol Ann Sayle at Boggy Creek have inspired chefs to add variations with the greens for both plants, but they still show up too often for my taste. We can thank a generation of chefs from Uchi, Uchiko, and East Side King for all the crispy brussels sprouts imitators, sort of like the turn-of-the-century years when many local chefs felt compelled to present their version of David Garrido's oyster nachos on yucca root chips..."

"...Indeed, the fuzzy clang Leather Girls discharges across last year's self-titled debut LP on San Antonio indie Yippee Ki Yay Records is only psychedelic by dint of the production. It follows two-and-a-half years from NYC native Garrido's introduction to Camacho through local psych institution Holy Wave, both musicians nursing fresh band breakup wounds..."
"...The ground floor space at the recently refurbished Radisson is very attractive, offering one of the city's best views of Lady Bird Lake. The hotel's executive chef, David Garrido, has a well-earned fine-dining reputation based on his years at Jeffrey's and the eponymous Garrido's Downtown..."
