CULI­NARY ALL-STARS

Austin Way - - NOW IN AUSTIN - 111 Congress Ave., fare­groundaustin.com –Stir­ling Kelso

With an im­pres­sive ros­ter of star chefs and head­liner fes­ti­vals, it’s sur­pris­ing that Austin doesn’t have a food hall. Leave it to ELM Restau­rant Group, the team be­hind Easy Tiger and Irene’s, to mix up the menu. Later this year, the cap­i­tal will wel­come Fare­ground, set to open in a con­tem­po­rary ur­ban plaza in the heart of down­town. “The food hall will show­case the bright­est rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the lo­cal din­ing scene... [to] ap­peal to Aus­tinites in search of a good meal and present vis­i­tors with a mi­cro­cosm of the city’s top din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences,” says Bob Gil­lett, co-founder of ELM. Stop by Con­tigo Fare­ground for a burger on a house­made chal­lah bun or the Dai Due Ta­que­ría for wild boar chorizo tacos. At Ni-Komé, a con­cept by the chefs at Komé Sushi Kitchen, you’ll find ni­giri and roll pairings, as well as rich bowls of ra­men. Head over to Hen­bit & Honey­bit—lit­tle sis­ter to Em­mer & Rye—for a sea­sonal ice cream treat. If you want to wrap things up with a sa­vory last bite, or­der a cheese board at An­tonelli’s Cheese Shop, an out­post of the Hyde Park fa­vorite.
