Odd Duck

The announcement that the Odd Duck food trailer was closing in 2011 devastated many Austinites—especially after chef Bryce Gilmore was named a Food & Wine “Best New Chef” and the Food Network featured Odd Duck on “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” So you can imagine the jubilation at the recent opening of the brick-and-mortar reincarnation of the trailer—on its original location on South Lamar Boulevard. Even more good news: Gilmore carried over his strict farm-to-table commitment, refusing to source ingredients from outside the state of Texas. And the shop-local mentality extends beyond the menu: The building itself was constructed using reclaimed barns and the bar comes from a local brewery.
