"...Do you know if Flo's restaurant will be re-opening? The sign is still out in front of her relatively new location on East 11th Street and Navasota. (An article on soul food in the Chronicle ["Southern Comfort," Vol.16, No.40] is what originally prompted me to go there.)..."

"...Reviving that world may have been the most important thing about this film for screenwriter-director Franklin (One False Move). While he stages the genre material efficiently enough - the obligatory slugfests and gunfights are crisp and the scenes of confrontation are adequately tense - he doesn't give them the spark of other, less plot-oriented sequences: making small talk in a store below a speakeasy, sharing food and drink at a kitchen table with a grieving man, panning past crowds of African-Americans bustling along Central Avenue..."
"..."We have our sources," she snorted with a big smirk on her face. If you get hungry or have a thirst for more than coffee, 'zino serves food, as well as beer and wine..."

"...Their books might not have a great deal in common on the surface – The Incendiaries follows two college students who wrestle with radicalization and loss of faith, There There is a multi-perspective novel about Native Americans living in Oakland, and All You Can Ever Know charts its author’s experience as a transracial adoptee – but Depp deftly found common ground for the panelists with questions about the intimate nature of their work, the way all three books play with structure, and the experiences Kwon, Orange, and Chung share as nonwhite authors surrounded by a very white literary canon. Kwon recounted her youthful lightbulb moment, realizing that she didn’t have to have white protagonists: “Oh, Korean food can be in a book!” Orange admitted that working on something as personal as There There was scary, but that he took comfort in the fact that “the people close to [him] know what’s true.” Chung shared her worries resulting from the fact that “scarcity is the norm” – there are so few Korean-American memorists or stories about and by transracial adoptees, and she wants to be clear that she is sharing her own specific experience, not speaking for everyone...."
"...A continuous lover." Indeed, beer shapes the culinary discourse here, with ingredients moving back and forth from brew space to kitchen, including barley and yeast and herbs and malt. In this historic area settled by a Swedish cattle rancher and, until recently, home to many low-income folks, the Brewer's Table is an innovative restaurant indicative of where the Austin food scene has been and is going, while also serving as the latest example of formidable change into the Eastside...."

"...25, 2-5pm. There will be free music, kids' activities, food, drinks, and tours of the new layout..."
"...The waitress recommended the mac & cheese and mashed potatoes, but the idea of consuming such a large pile of similarly colored carb mush made my citified heart shake in its boots, so I replaced the potatoes with cabbage (the only non-fried vegetable option on the menu). The steak is pounded thin and slapped with a layer of chewy thin breading, super crispy and lace-ragged at the edges, like the best fast-food chicken you ever had..."
"...Alongside Park Chan-wook, Snowpiercer director Bong Joon-ho has become the most recognizable name in Korean cinema for American audiences – so much so that Netflix not only financed his latest, Okja, but has given it the big awards season push. But where Park (The Handmaiden, the Vengeance trilogy) always fostered a twist of the high gothic in his work, Bong's characters are blue-collar underdogs: store workers, secretaries, fast-food vendors...."
"...If you turn your nose up at eating oysters with crackers and cocktail sauce, then a Gulf oyster isn't for you. They're blue-collar, working-class seafood; they're shellfish for the people..."
"...“So the first part I consider the question: What do we think we’re accomplishing doing all this stuff? Rather than making sure people have enough food and clothing, we’re using violence to try to free them? The answer is the crazy blow-out part...."

"...By the time I was able to make my first dinner visit some five years ago, the entire place seemed dusty, weighed down with swags of Victorian(ish) drapery and overly polite quiet. And the food seemed just as dated..."
"..."Yes! I just caught the end, but I knew it was your voice! '... simple goodness, like farm fresh foods and sunny days..."
"...Most writers do all their managing of events from the comfort of a computer screen, but Tremblay was also an expert stage manager, plying his skills at some of the biggest events in town – the X Games, South by Southwest, Pachanga Fest, the Austin Food and Wine Festival, and the Texas Monthly BBQ Festival – and events involving some of the biggest names anywhere: President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Kanye West, to name a few. He was also festival director for the Moontower Comedy & Oddity Festival..."
"...Part of the problem may lie in their branding. Austin's pitch early on included self-driving cars, electric fleets, and "connected corridors" along stretches of roads and highways – exactly the sorts of touch-of-a-button services residents likely envision when they imagine a smart city – all intended "to improve access to jobs, education, healthcare, healthy food, and other areas of need." But at their core, smart cities aren't a mesh network of optimized consumer services, they're a trove of constant data collection; data collection that, in theory, cities can then use to adapt those consumer-facing services in real time...."

"...Lemaire – who began shooting, writing, producing, and directing her debut in 2011 – follows three subjects: the self-confident, quiet Nick, who feels compelled to connect with his food; phobia-ridden Alex; and Ashlie, whose father believes hunting will cut through her reserve. By chance, these young people are thrown together on an expedition organized by the U.S..."

"...And yes, he might owe you an explanation as well, but do you really want one? Do you really want to hear why this guy felt it was important to get the message out on social media that he scored some strange at a festival? Bravo, good sir. We are all impressed that you barebacked your FBetrothed in a porta-potty next to the McDonald’s “Fry-Fi” food truck, but that, like chlamydia, is not a post-worthy accomplishment..."

"...When we interviewed culinary director and project partner Philip Speer before the restaurant opened in the fall, he said "made-from-scratch doughs and batters will be the canvas for what we create here," describing St. Philip as "a comfortable neighborhood restaurant offering guests good food and an interactive dining experience." Based on several recent visits, we'd have to say that vision is being realized..."
"...The press conference was supposed to preview what the city promised would be a "family-friendly celebration featuring the best of Austin arts, music, food and culture." Specifically, it would feature a performance by DJ! Dub Academy and Soul Sessions Breakdancers, plus an "interactive hologram" created by Asleep At the Wheel vocalist Elizabeth McQueen." Instead, it was Manno explaining exactly why the forecast for bad weather was enough to shut the whole affair down...."

"...Now that I've had a chance to give the menu a test-drive, El Sapo has become my go-to neighborhood spot for designer burgers, replacing the much-lamented Your Mom's Burger Bar that departed from Airport Boulevard in the spring. It's convenient both to eat in and take out, and the food packs a wallop of flavor..."
"...The world is really your oyster at dinnertime, whether you want to go large with enchiladas and margs at Matt’s El Rancho, steak or burgers at ALC Steaks, locally sourced Southern comfort at Greenhouse Craft Food, or old-world with Nik’s Italian Kitchen...."
"...News of the redevelopment raised plenty of local eyebrows at the donation's June announcement, among other reasons because the events production company (which in 2009 also lavishly re-greened ACL Fest site Zilker Park) was initiating a project that would displace the Fun Fun Fun Fest, produced by C3 competitor Transmission Events. (The project has also forced temporary relocation of a number of other events and festivals: the Reggae Festival, the Urban Music Festival, shows at South by Southwest, a number of city races, and C3's own Austin Food & Wine Festival, currently on the calendar for the last weekend in April.)..."

"...My guess is that as soon as cheese made its appearance on American shores, and that was most likely via the Spanish, some crude form of grilled cheese sandwich-making was going on. I couldn't tell you who actually invented it, but I do know it's one of the most satisfying comfort foods in culinary history...."
"...The first one is the people: We have 90,000 employees at the department.
