With Tuesday’s opening of Vox Table and next week’s opening of Shake Shack, the Lamar Union mixed-use project is starting to take shape.  Executive chef Joe Anguiano helms Vox Table, a New American restaurant specializing in small plates.  Anguiano’s previous experience includes time as executive chef at Eleven Plates and as executive sous chef at The Bazaar by José Andrés in Beverly Hills. Designed by celebrated Austinite Joel Mozersky, Vox Table currently serves a dinner menu of small plates influenced by flavors of France and Spain, with dishes such as crispy frog legs served with Wildfire blue cheese and an herb noisette; blackened kampachi collar with celery root, Fuji apples and a citrus aioli; and braised Akaushi oxtail. The team at Vox Table includes executive pastry chef Allison Henschel (formerly of the W Hotel and Driskill Hotel), and beverage director Travis Tober, whose program will include wine, beer, and craft cocktails, with a separate drinks menu devoted to Old Fashioneds. Vox Table serves dinner from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, with plans to eventually add brunch and lunch. For more details including menus, visit
