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.
