This week was Rebecca Meeker’s last at Congress. The former chef de cuisine has left David Bull’s restaurant to become a chef and project manager for Larry McGuire’s and Tommy Moorman’s growing restaurant enterprise.
“I’m very excited for the opportunity to work with Larry and his team,” Meeker told Texas Monthly. “They’re extremely creative and I truly admire the work they’ve done so far.”
More than half a million votes have been tallied, and Austin has been named one of the top ten Tastiest Towns in the South by Southern Living magazine. (Funny enough, the Huffington Post recently snubbed Austin, calling it one of the ten most overrated travel destinations in the country.)
The people have spoken: Foreign & Domestic’s Jodi Elliott is Food & Wine’s the People’s Best New Pastry Chef.
The Austin chef was nominated in the Central Region category a few weeks ago, along with Barley Swine’s Kyle McKinney, Swift’s Attic’s Callie Speer, Congress’ Erica Waksmunski, Oxheart’s Karen Man, and Underbelly’s Victoria Dearmond.
