Entertaining With :: Ben & Andrew, Contigo

July 19th, 2012

Contigo Austin is undoubtedly one of the city’s hottest spots. After opening its doors just over a year ago, this casual eatery has garnered attention from Food & Wine, New York Times (my Instagram feed) and many others. The Austin Chronicle named it the Best Place to Celebrate Anything with All Your Friends. It was the gastro-ranch (yep, made that up) menu, seasonal ingredients, and cool artisanal design that originally sparked my interest in profiling the restaurant’s owners Ben Edgerton and Andrew Wiseheart for our Entertaining With series… but on the day of our interview, their warm and witty personalities, cool backstory and totally inspiring entertaining philosophies ended up being the icing on the cake. Click through the images (shot by Chelsea Fullerton) for all the details!
