A Little Late -- Trace Food Porn


I am beyond thrilled that I was able to attend TWO events in the past month that focused on the wonderful food of Trace, at the W Hotel in downtown Austin.



Hotel restaurants can be hit or miss for me, but Trace is one of those rare "hits" that is more than worth it. In all honesty, it's probably not a restaurant I can afford regularly, but the bites I had are proof enough that it's well worth the price.


Plus now with their Happy Hour and excellent brunch, there really is no reason not to check out their amazing lineup.

First, I went to the Austin Food Blogger Alliance Monthly Happy Hour in May. It was incredible. Both a mini buffet of their summer menu and servers bringing bite after bite to the table. There was not a weak piece here at all. From the rabbit gnocchi to the lump crab meat over squid ink pasta to the amazing strawberry dessert sampler, it was all perfect.



There seriously was not one bad bite in the lineup!


Oh and their spicy lemonade was INCREDIBLE. This MIGHT be my new favorite drink.



Next event was a fundraiser and popup pig roast. 


A totally different crowd, but also a ton of fun to attend! Pork tacos, fish tacos, and oysters. Delish.



Now I'm dreaming of going back for that happy hour or a fancy date night with the boy. I took a ton of pictures, enjoy!

  1. I came for NYC events here and was amazed how fantastic this place was. It must've taken so much planning to deliver such an extraordinary experience.
