Chez Zee This Saturday on Austin DM

Interviewing Sharon Watkins at Chez Zee

AUSTIN: Saturdays 10-11 a.m., Talk 1370 

For more than two decades, Chez Zee has been an Austin institution – lunch, dinner, brunch – and if owner Sharon Watkins could think of another meal or available day part, she’d surely work to be an institution with that too. Coming into restaurant ownership from several other industries, she brings an intriguingly different perspective to everything we can possibly eat and drink within these walls. Yes, she seems to be saying, you can be all things to all people. 

Also, it’s that time of year again – time for pickin’ and stompin, as in the popular wine harvest festival at Messina Hof winery and resort in Bryan. We chat with longtime friends Paul and Merrill Bonarrigo about this year’s ever-outrageous festivities, while tasting and talking our way through Messina Hof’s latest releases.
