Austin Way - - SCENE | STYLE | SPACE -

Be­fore the East Side be­came the city’s culi­nary des­ti­na­tion du jour, vi­sion­ary Amy Ramirez opened Blue Dahlia in 2007, fea­tur­ing a Frenchin­spired menu (crois­sants, tartines, coq au vin blanc) and a lush pa­tio. Re­calls Ramirez, who now co-owns Blue Dahlia with her hus­band, Sam, whom she met through the res­tau­rant: “It was re­ally im­por­tant to cre­ate a space that was warm and com­fort­able.” This sum­mer, Blue Dahlia will open a third lo­ca­tion in San Mar­cos and mark the fifth birth­day of its West­lake spot in June. The orig­i­nal lo­ca­tion, re­cently re­freshed with new land­scap­ing and fur­ni­ture, will host a Bastille Day-in­spired cel­e­bra­tion to mark its 10th an­niver­sary in July. Among those cel­e­brat­ing will be staff mem­bers who have been with Blue Dahlia since the be­gin­ning. “It has been ex­tremely im­por­tant to us to cre­ate a fam­ily within Blue Dahlia,” says Ramirez. 1115 E. 11th St., 512-5429542; bluedahli­abistro.com
