Parkside has energy. A few volts come from the eclectic, loft-like space, decked with a raw bar for eating seafood and pristine oysters. And a lightning bolt’s worth comes from Chef Shawn Cirkiel’s seasonal, ingredient-driven food. There’s a Californian freshness to his plates, with only-in-Austin twists that reflect local product and flare. Pastry Chef Steven Cak’s sweets veer from comfort-food favorites (doughnuts) to intense meditations on single ingredients (Strawberries Six Ways).
