Welcome to EAT THIS CITY, your weekly tour of the best restaurants in one of our favorite cities, as chosen by top chefs. 

Join us as we head to Austin, Texas!

With its commitment to keeping weird, some have called it the “Portland” of Texas, but Austin has a flavor all its own. The Texas state capital eschews big business and commercialism in favor of the independent, homegrown, and authentic. No wonder that our chef this week fits in so well!

Meet Chef Bryce Gilmore, owner of Barley Swine and Odd Duck.

Born into a culinary family–his father is Jack Gilmore, owner and executive chef of Jack Allen’s Kitchen–Gilmore found his calling in cooking and creating. This second-generation Austin chef has a talent that speaks for itself, and critics clearly agree.
