What others say: “Longtime local restaurateurs Larry Foles and Guy Villavaso, known for perennial favorites Eddie V's Prime Seafood, Salty Sow, and, more recently, Red Ash Italia, have struck gold once again with a modern Mexican concept at the Northshore building downtown. Never mind the unimaginative name, ATX Cocina is anything but.” — Claudia Alarcon, Culture Map Austin
