Barbecue restaurant EastSide Tavern opened in a refined, industrial space at 1501 E. Cesar Chavez St. last week. The restaurant serves barbecue staples like brisket, pulled pork, pork ribs, turkey and chicken, as well as some change-of-pace dishes like blackened fish tacos, Frito pie and smoked chicken wings. In addition to a couple of dozen beers and wine, EastSde Tavern also serves a slew of specialty cocktails, including barrel-aged and tap cocktails. (eastsidetavernaustin.com)
