Nic Patrizi, chef and owner of the successful food trailer The Jalopy, opened Patrizi's bringing savory Italian cuisine to Austin. The trailer officially opened in May and is located at the Butterfly Bar and Vortex. This is really a reopening of sorts as Patrizi's was owned and operated by his family in Beaumont Texas for 50 years. He is using his family recipes making pastas, sauces and ricotta in house. The trailer itself was decorated by 30 local artists who were given free creative rein. Patrizi's menu offers vegetarian options and half portions.
The Vortex/Butterfly Bar has a great outdoor patio with plenty of seating if memory does serve me correctly.
