Parkside, a gastropub in Austin’s lively downtown area, is home to chef-owner Shawn Cirkiel (head of Parkside Projects). Located directly on Sixth Street, it offers a casual venue for his unpretentious but bold take on New American cuisine. Offerings include a sumptuous raw bar, which often carries as many as 12 varieties of oysters. Although the menu changes seasonally — even daily — diners can enjoy dramatic dishes or comfort basics such as a cheeseburger.
