Dale DeGroff fixing us a cocktail
AUSTIN: Saturday’s 10-11 a.m. on Talk 1370
Basing our show in Houston this week, we check out a restaurant well worth the drive from Austin – the sentimental favorite Brennan’s, only returned from the dead after the fire ignited during the long, dark night of Hurricane Ike. The place is 70-80 percent the same as it used to be, but it feels (in the best sense) like a whole new restaurant. We chat with new executive chef Danny Trace in the glassed-in Kitchen Table, as all the cooks and knives fly by. And… as part of the same excursion, in our Grape & Grain segment we discuss the State of the Cocktail with the guy who knows best, “King Cocktail” himself, Dale DeGroff. Dale has a new book that’ll tell us all about it.
