New La Sombra on Austin DM

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

A Presentation of Spec’s Wines, Spirits & Finer Foods

On today’s show, we visit one of Austin’s very newest restaurants, La Sombra. Yes, that does mean “the shade” and if the folks here keep doing what they’re doing, that’s what we think they’ll have it made in. The idea is to serve not only NOT Tex-Mex food but not even particularly Mexican food. La Sombra takes a broad brush to the wonderful foods (and wines) of South America, starting with the exquisite ceviches of Peru. Other best bets hail from places as diverse as Chile and Brazil. In our Grape & Grain segment we join Texas photographer Damian Hevia to discuss an exhibit now hanging at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in New Orleans – a collection of his photos themed around his favorite spirit, the long-demonized absinthe.
