Fonda San Miguel on Austin’s DM

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

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

For going on 30 years now, Fonda San Miguel has been the destination restaurant for authentic Mexican food and authentic Mexican décor in Austin – heavy on the décor. At least that’s what the owner would admit, after spending a great deal of time and money in the intervening years bringing back cool stuff from places like San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato. Turns out, the food is excellent right along with the look and feel of this wonderland. We chat with owner Tom Gilliland and his chef about the long road Fonda has traveled from the days when Tex-Mex was the only juego in town.

Also today, we sit down for a tasting with the two guys who’ve given the world Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka, a flavorful addition to anyone’s home bar – and a nifty new twist for a night out.
