NYE dinner in Austin was at Frank, purveyors of artisan sausages.  It was the perfect spot to go on a busy night for a casual dinner before the loud and crazy began.  Aimee &  I each got the Notorious PIG:   House-made pork, bacon, jalapeno & sage sausage with macaroni & cheese, Texas BBQ sauce

It was good, though I wish the mac & cheese had been warmer.  the bun was amazing.

BK’s first dog was the Chili Cheese dog, followed shortly by a Chicago Dog – he says they were well-balanced, flavorful and delicious:


To end we shared a trio of desserts – chocolate bread pudding, chocolate chip bacon cookie and chocolate covered bacon

The cookie was least exciting of the three – I thought the bacon would be baked into it, not just piled on top.  The chocolate covered bacon was the most intriguing and delivered – a tasty mix of salty & sweet.  The bread pudding was delicious, drizzled with a rum butter sauce and nice & warm.

Definitely visit if you find yourself in Austin.
