Launderette Restaurant in Austin
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!
