The New Manny’s on Saturday’s Austin DM

Posted on

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

In the past few months, the Austin institution called Manny Hattan’s NY Deli has evolved into Manny’s Uptown Kitchen – as the slogan puts it, “keeping the best and cheffing up the rest.” The result, to say the least, is an intriguing hybrid, its menu still packed with pastrami and matzoh ball soup but also brimming with newer-style bistro favorites. We sit down for a tasting with Manny’s owner Aaron Mayers, hearing about where the place has been and where it hopes to go with these changes. In our Grape and Grain tasting segment, winemaker Gary Sitton joins us for a run through Blackstone’s latest merlots, the varietal that regularly places the winery on what seems like every table in America.
