The City of Austin and Visit Austin launched a new site called ATXLoves earlier this week! It was facilitated by a grant through the City of Austin to create an online experience guide + interactive map that connects visitors to locally-loved businesses, aggregated from a variety of groups and publications that highlight Austin’s favorite local businesses.
I was asked, by LookThinkMake, to contribute to the site as a Food Influencer and naturally, being the East #Austinite that I am, I curated my list with my favorite East ATX Restaurants! Several other Influencers from the city contributed too, with lists from their favorite coffee shops, to nightlife and drinks, and best places to grab meals and snacks to name a few.
Check out my curated list here and browse through all the others!
All in all, ATXLoves and everyone who contributed brought support to over 800 homegrown businesses and spreading the word amongst tourists of what Austin loves.
I hope you’ll enjoy the lists and discover some gems all across town!
