First Look: Chavez, Shawn Cirkiel's New Spot

Parkside, Olive & June and Backspace welcome Chavez to the family.

Coach to first class. Cubicle to an office with a door. Drunk hookup to a main squeeze. We all deserve an upgrade now and again.

Book it to brand new Chavez, the Michael Hsu-designed hotspot in the former TGI Friday's at the Radisson. Shawn Cirkiel's latest project offers inventive fare any Texan should recognize and adore - think fresh homemade tortillas and enchiladas with cojita cheese, along with fun twists like oyster taquitos. Snag a spot in the super sleek booths and take in the gorgeous poolside views looking over Lady Bird Lake through the picturesque walls of windows. Planning a staycation in the hotel? Chavez bites can be ordered via room service and at the pool.
 
You may even trade your Fryes for Ferragamo for the occasion.

The Austin Tidbits gals loved celebrating with chef Shawn Cirkiel at last week's soft opening. Check out a couple pics here and here from the night.
