New Restaurant in Austin, TX: the backspace

I am excited to announce the opening of Chef Shawn Cirkiel's newest restaurant, the backspace.

Serving authentic Neapolitan pizza from a wood fired oven, artisanal antipasti, and classic Italian dolci.

They are in the process creating their website with full menus. I took a look at the sample menu provided to me as a sneak peek. I was impressed.

Chef Shawn Cirkiel graduated with honors from the Culinary Institute of America. He put his time in at New York's Cafe Boulud and the Napa Valley restaurant of vintner Domain Chandon before returning to Texas to create his first business with his family's backing, Jean-Luc's Bistro, on Colorado St. in 2002. His menu features seasonal items that show a French flair.

I think you will be very pleased.
