First Look at Garrido's, Austin
Mon June 8, 2009 10:32 am

foliageYes! Yes indeedy. Had a light dinner at David Garrido's casual new interior Mexican/taco/small-plate venue Sunday night, and I will be checking it out again soon. Oyster nachos (almost identical version to the one chef-owner  David Garrido made famous at Jeffrey's)--yum! Crabmeat guacamole, lush, lavish, and delish. Lamb "pops" in roasted-garlic and ancho chile sauce also a keeper--though these had some sinew and required occasional  gnawing. Flavor great, though. Finished with silky flan with mango. Best of all, it's a fabulous  setting on Shoal Creek, very mod, "green" building, too; lots of deck space, feels tropical with the palm trees & other foliage. 360 Nueces, Austin, first floor of the 360 condos, next to Mulberry wine bar; (512) 320-8226.
