A collection of East Austin restaurants has teamed for Eat East, a weekly event intended to drive interest in the burgeoning entertainment district. Seven restaurants on East Sixth and East Seventh streets will offer paired cocktail-and-appetizer specials in the $8-$10 range every Tuesday night of the summer between July 14 and Labor Day. The participating restaurants are the Hightower (1209 East Seventh St.), LaV (1501 E Seventh St.), Silo: 1300 (E. Seventh St.), Salt & Time (1912 E. Seventh St.), Gardner (1914 E. Sixth St.), Tamale House East (1707 E Sixth St.), Spartan Pizza (1007 E Sixth St.), Gelateria Gemelli (1009 E Sixth St.), and Buenos Aires Café (1201 E Sixth St.).
Expect specials like fried sweet potatoes with urfa mayonnaise paired with Kalimotxo (red wine and soda) at Gardner, and a Bulleit Rye-based cocktail paired with Brussels sprouts at Hightower. The restaurants will update their individual Facebook pages each week with their Tuesday specials.
