TRIBEZA CHEF'S TABLE SERIES
WITH CHEF SHAWN CIRKIEL AT PARKSIDE
MONDAY, JUNE 27
Join Chef Shawn Cirkiel in Parkside's private dining room for an intimate five-course dinner featuring dishes inspired by the summer season. Widely recognized as one of Austin’s most creative restaurateurs, Cirkiel has gained the honor of Austin’s youngest five-star chef. He introduced Austin to the gastro pub concept with Parkside and continues to inspire diners with his innovative approach to New American cuisine.
Having grown up on a farm, Cirkiel developed a passion for fresh local food which was complemented by his training at the Culinary Institute of America. This obsession with seasonal and local ingredients also led him to become a founding chef of the Sustainable Food Center’s Farmers’ Market in downtown Austin and a member of the Nutrition and Health Board for Austin Independent School District’s Highland Park Elementary, where he has played an instrumental role in building a variety of healthy-eating, exercise and gardening programs.
Since opening the award-winning Parkside — known for its impressive oyster selections, raw seafood bar and seasonally rotating menu — Cirkiel has received much media attention, most recently noted in Food Arts Magazine. He has also graced the pages of the Los Angeles Times, American Way magazine, Spirit Magazine, and Cooks Illustrated, just to name a few. Texas Monthly magazine named Parkside one of the “Top 10 Best New Restaurants in Texas” in 2009, and Bon Appetit Magazine crowned Parkside one of the “Hot 10 New American Taverns” and a top destination for pub cuisine.
