One of my biggest culinary crushes is David Bull. James Beard Best Chef Southwest nominee, Food and Wine Best New Chef, Iron Chef competitor, and a genuinely nice guy, former Driskill executive chef David Bull will be returning to Austin in Fall 2010 with a trio of restaurants at the Austonian on 2nd and Congress. Congress will be the name of the formal dining room, 2nd will be a more casual bistro, and Bar Congress will round things out with the cocktail crowd.
Chef Bull recently conducted a vegetarian cooking class at Central Market. Do not worry, he has not gone vegetarian on us. Just showing off his creativity in a healthy way.
