Just the Chop

We all know that Austin’s East Side dining is all the rage and there’s always something going on from what’s changing at Qui to Jacoby’s and the delicious, but peculiar, Sawyer. However, the long-running favorite is Justine’s; French flair, curiously cool staff, and crafted cocktails that make you smile. One of my¬†favorites, other than the steak frites, is the butter-soaked pork chop. Super, super delicious! If you’re wanting a seat indoors, arrive early – super early. Cozy tables, comfortable atmosphere, a little loud.
