Austin360Eats: Small plates (and a celebrity sighting) at Salty Sow

Addie Broyles

Kelsey Harp, a digital brand consultant in Austin who posts photos on Instagram as @koharp, went to Salty Sow last weekend and had a little celebrity sighting with her dinner.

Harp posted this photo of her meal — Brussels sprout Caesar salad with candied almonds, chicken liver mousse and pickled onions, milk-braised pork carnitas and catfish tacos — along with a comment about spotting Zooey Deschanel also enjoying dinner at the restaurant at 1917 Manor Road. (A quick social media search confirms that Deschanel was paged by name over the intercom at the Austin airport on Monday.)

Thanks to the #Austin360Eats hashtag, I also found out about an Italian restaurant and pizzeria called Cedro in Northwest Austin and Izumi Sushi in West Lake Hills.

We also got a glimpse of zucchini noodles at Cru Wine Bar, the banh mi bowl at the Peached Tortilla and a massive banh mi sandwich from the newly opened Dang Banh Mi that is stuffed with four kinds of pork, and I posted from the new Figure 8 coffee shop at 1111 Chicon St.
