What is your favorite kind of food?

I'm curious by nature so I'll eat any cuisine at least once. Italian is my favorite by far.

What is your favorite wine?

Favorite white is any Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. Try Nautilus and you'll know what I mean. I don't have one favorite red but I like my wine thick enough to cut with a fork. I did have the pleasure of drinking an '84 Opus One and that has been the wine highlight of my life so far!

What is your favorite restaurant in Austin?

Trattoria Lisina.

What is your favorite wine bar in Austin?

I've only been to Cru so they win by default.


I recently relocated to Austin from San Antonio and love all things food and wine. I look forward to learning more about the food and wine scene in Austin, meeting fellow foodies (is the wine equivalent a winey? lol) and experiencing Austin. Cheers!
