Congratulations are due to Sue of Counter Culture! She’s signed a lease on an East Austin space. The Brick-and-Mortar Counter Culture will be on Ceasar Chavez five blocks east of Chicon. That’s near the east location of Mr. Natural. Expect sit down table service, wine and beer, and a patio. Sue will expand the menu while keeping some (but not all!) of the current cart favorites. All the food will be the healthy comfort food that Counter Culture does best. New items will include salads, sides, raw foods, and lots of deserts. I’m hoping the pumpkin cheesecake makes a permanent appearance.
The new location is expected to open in early March. The trailer will stay open until January or so, which means we’ll have to endure a few weeks without Counter Culture. The trailer is just a few blocks from where I live, so I’ll be sad to see it go. But having an expanded menu and the conveniences of indoor dining in bad weather will more than make up for that.
