About Shawn Cirkiel

Shawn Cirkiel’s flagship restaurant, Parkside, opened on Austin’s historic 6th Street in 2008 and first introduced the “farm-to-table” concept long before it became commonplace in town. Parkside is the flagship to Chef Cirkiel’s Parkside Projects, which also includes: the backspace, Olive & June, Bullfight and 800 Congress.

"Around here, Gulf oysters seem to be pretty darn popular, but not with me. Parkside offers an array of oysters from different coasts. One day, you could have Chatham, Blue Point, Malpeque, Pleasant Bay, Amai, Bald Point, Kumamoto and/or Mirada oysters. They're always fresh and on point."
