Tastemakers :: Eden East

There’s farm to table… and then there’s Eden East. A visit to acclaimed Austin chef and restaurateur Sonya Cote’s newest concept is a magical dining experience: nestled among lush fields on an urban farm, with reclaimed wood tables under dusky skies and twinkling fairy lights, diners enjoy a sumptuous meal closer to the source than they have perhaps ever been. In the dreamy twilight haze, food tastes more alive, conversation is more real and somehow more intimate, the sounds of the farm seduce, and it all just kind of goes to your head — this is dinner in paradise.

    Such gorgeous photos — Eden looks like the perfect spot to enjoy a farm-fresh meal in a lovely setting. Elizabeth, I think you should do a farm-to-table book about Austin!

    I completely agree with you Elizabeth, it is its own little paradise! I had the privilege of dining here a couple weeks ago while visiting Austin and can say we really enjoyed it. The food was fresh – we especially liked the oyster, quail leg, and crepes – and the staff so friendly. The overall ambiance made for one of my favorite dining experiences!
