Watch: Restaurant review of Chicon in East Austin

Ben Edgerton and chef Andrew Wiseheart closed their fine dining, veggie-centric Gardner earlier this year. But they didn’t walk away from the restaurant. They revamped the menu and design to create the more casual Chicon, a refined take on comfort food that feels akin to their original restaurant, Contigo. Chicon is located at 1914 E. Sixth St.
