Boston chow mom here, looking for advice from Austin hounds. My son's birthday is coming up and I would like to give him a gift certificate to an interesting specialty store that offers tastings and fun classes, along the lines of Murray's or Zabar's in Manhattan, or Formaggio here in Boston.
It could have a cheese focus, or be all about artisan bread, micro-brews, fish, herbs and spices, pastry or even kitchen equipment.... anything that's really original and exciting. He eats plenty of BBQ and TexMex already, so I'm looking for something different that might lead to new discoveries.
He lives in Travis Heights, I have no idea of how you get around there. Thanks so much!
