James Beard Award–nominated chefs and local culinary stars Rene Ortiz and his partner in crime – renowned pastry chef Laura Sawicki – have opened Launderette, the long-awaited East Austin neighborhood café. The converted washateria serves simple, and everyday fare with a Mediterranean influence. Be sure to try their snacky bits of the day!
Stay tuned for Angry Bear, the Chinese takeout joint and grocery store that will sell Sawicki’s pastries next door.
