Austin and Other Food Cities


Tom just got back from a long weekend in Austin, Texas and was blown away by the food scene. He talks to Mike about Austin and other smaller cities with great blossoming food scenes.

Tom’s Austin Picks

Loro: An Asian Smokehouse owned by Chef Tyson Cole of Uchi and Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue

Franklin Barbecue: Arguably the best Barbecue Restaurant in America. 5 hour wait for Brisket that sells out in one hour

Cities to Look Out For

Atlanta: Probably the closest to being a Tier 1 Hospitality City
DC: Incredible Food Scene
San Francisco: Great Food Scene, but tech money has created a restaurant bubble and there are a lot of issues
Both Portlands: Oregon and Maine both with excellent restaurants and worth visiting strictly to eat at
The Entire State of North Carolina: Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte especially, North Carolina is on the rise
