Industry News: Park Motel Cafe makes a comeback

The Park Motel Café landed on Broadway in 2010, and disappeared last year. For the short while it was open, regulars went for the well-done sandwiches and decadent desserts. Well, it’s back, as a different restaurant — a pizzeria. Last week, Park Motel Café announced on their Facebook page that they are opening SoBro Pizza Co. at 1915 Broadway, at the corner of Broadway and Grayson. The restaurant will serve Neapolitan-style pizza, salads, and gelato. Tentative open date is in July.

A couple of local chefs are driving north for a barbecue competition. Chef Jason Dady from Tre Trattoria, BIN 555, and Two Bros. BBQ, and Jesse Perez from Arcade Midtown Kitchen will be at the Live Fire! competition at Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood. Barbecue masters from other Texas towns will be manning pits at the contest on April 25. Prices are $75 per ticket, and benefits the Austin Food & Wine Alliance, the group that hosts the annual Austin Food & Wine Festival. Tickets are available at austinfoodwinealliance.org.
