(map) You’ve gotta love a guy who calls rainwater “cloud juice” and signs off his emails with “Tanks.” The self-proclaimed mayor of Tank Town, Richard Heinichen knows everything there is to know about collecting rainwater, and then some.

(map) “Get hooked!” is the motto at this new, artisanal smoked-salmon shop. One bite of their silky, fresh-tasting, cold-smoked salmon and you will be. Chef Sebastien trained in the kitchen in all kinds of cuisines, but a few years ago, decided the world needed a better smoked salmon. Lucky for us, he and his wife Stephanie […]

(map) If you love pastrami, you owe it to yourself to try the best pastrami sandwich in Texas (and maybe even the US). The original vision for Pieous was to be all about pizza (get it? pie). But then the previous owner left behind his smoker, which inspired chef Josh to cure and smoke his […]

(map) “Texas Bubbly” sounds like it should be made from grapes. But the creative minds at Argus had another idea. Why not use all Texas-grown apples, press and ferment them into sparkling hard cider? Delicious (not a Texas variety, by the way)! They’ve been bottling cider for a couple of years, but just opened

(map) The beer from Jester King Brewery is so amazing, all it needs is one thing: pizza. Now, with the addition of this wood-burning pizza oven, the eat, drink, and be merry picture is complete (open on Saturdays and Sundays). Stanley’s offers a short-but-satisfying menu of pizzas showcasing fresh local ingredients and

(map) The newest way to espresso yourself in Dripping Springs, Mazama opened two weeks ago on historic Mercer Street. Located in a former ironworks shop, the cafe has been transformed into a cozy space lined with reclaimed wood. Family owned and operated, Mazama serves locally roasted

(map) Dining here is like starring in a real-life “Fried Green Tomatoes.” This cozy place is a vintage Southern cottage, in the midst of a small nursery selling herbs, vegetables and native plants. You can savor the farm-fresh ingredients inside, then pick up your own after lunch!
