French Bistro on 2nd
Le Politique is Austin’s new French bistro from New Waterloo, owners of Sway, La Condesa and South Congress Hotel. Husband-and-wife team Derek Salkin and Alyssa Hurlstone join the restaurant as Executive Chef and Executive Pastry Chef, respectively. We love that they’re our new neighbors and enjoyed having them provide the food at our Grand Opening event on September 21st.
Salkin’s resume includes positions at Jean Georges, The Modern, Thomas Keller’s Per Se and The French Laundry, and Joël Robuchon Restaurant at the Mansion, a Michelin three-starred French restaurant located in Las Vegas
