Food Network Magazine in America’s 10 Best French Fries

Our fries garnered top honors in Food Network Magazine’s search for the 10 best French fries in the USA! Look for us in space #7 on the list. 

We’ve added this award to being listed in People Magazine’s listing of our fries in the 15 Best French Fries in America list.

Both nationally-recognized publications conducted thorough, nation-wide searches for the best French fries in America, singling out Hyde Park’s buttermilk-dipped, seasoned-flour breaded, hand cut Idaho potato fries with the signature mayo-jalapeno sauce for top honors.

With all due respect to those who may feel otherwise, the comfort and safety of our customers is our highest concern.

Therefore, we join with our fellow Austin Original businesses including Kerbey Lane, Taco Deli, Trudy’s, Franklin’s BBQ, and Amy’s Ice Cream in prohibiting open carry of firearms at all Hyde Park Bar & Grill establishments.

Remnants-of-Weird-David-Fridlund

David Fridlund’s Art at Hyde Park on Duval, Dec 6 – Jan 16th, Art Party Dec 7!

David Fridlund’s collection “Remnants of Weird” captures Austin in transition.

We’re pleased to display paintings by David Fridlund

at Hyde Park Bar & Grill on Duval, Dec 6 – Jan 16th

David Fridlund isn’t a native Austinite by any means, but in his seven years as an Austin resident, the Swedish-born artist has created some of the most poignant Austin-themed art the city has ever seen.

Offering an interesting perspective as an Austin transplant who arrived at the crux of the transformation of Austin from a small, ‘weird’ city to a fast-growing “big city,” Fridlund’s “Remnants of Weird” collection strikes a chord with both new and long-time Austinites.

Hyde Park bar & Grill, an Austin-original restaurant, is pleased to host Fridlund’s Austin-themed collection as both a “celebration of life” for the city we once knew and an open-arms welcome to the newcomers of Austin.

Fridlund’s pieces will be displayed Dec 6-Jan 16, with an Art Opening Party on Dec 7th from 5-7pm. We invite all Austinites both new and “old” to come see a veritable piece of history in the making,  the changing scene of Austin,  recorded using colored pencils.

Death or rebirth? It’s all in your point of view.

We’ll conduct an in-depth interview with the Artist on Dec 6th, and invite you to leave any questions you have for Fridlund in the comments of this post!

FROM THE ARTIST:

Art exhibition opening. This is the first time I am showing my work at a larger scale! I have been working for a couple of years now on a series of pictures from around Austin; places that are being torn down, altered or just places that I find attractive and beautiful or somehow interesting. I work with color pencils on paper.

ARTIST STATEMENT //
At times, we have that inner voice compelling us to plan ahead, rush to the next task so we can check off those boxes, or stick to the routine so as not to rock the boat. Experimenting with alcohol inks commands me to be in the present moment and extinguish that voice as I respond and surrender to the viscous story unfolding in front of me. There is a natural, intuitive conversation that takes place between myself and the medium, as I explore feelings of liberation, transformative growth and taking chances.

PROCESS //
Alcohol Inks are a relatively new medium in the fine art world. The inks come in dropper bottles and are applied to a heat-resistant smooth surface. Varying amounts of rubbing alcohol are poured to dilute the pigment, and the flow of the ink is directed by a heat emboss tool that blows hot air. It is a bit of a science experiment depending on the order of application, the flow of the ink, and the direction and closeness of the hot air. The beauty of the finished product is the result of a give and take between artist and medium, where influence transcends control.

Eat Tony’s Southern Fried Chicken every Mon & Tues after 5pm!

By | Central location, Food, Signature Dishes, South location | No Comments

You may have heard about Tony’s Southern Fried Chicken from Texas Monthly or Rob Balon or one of the many highly respected Austin food bloggers.  You may have heard that this chicken is THE classic Southern Fried Bone-In Chicken, so good it could make you elbow your grandma out of a church supper buffet line. So good we have to treat like a controlled substance. Offered only on Mondays and Tuesdays so we have time to put in the LOVE.

Chef Tony Herring & his brother Jed. Fantastic fried chicken is a Herring family tradition!

If so, you heard right.

The secrets to perfect fried chicken lie in the meat preparation, the breading, and in clean, high quality oil held at the ideal temperature throughout the vat.  It takes special attention and time.  That’s why we offer this dish only on Monday & Tuesday nights, which are typically less crowded than the weekends, at a time when we can give this chicken the care it deserves.   But be aware:  this chicken’s so good, we’ve been known do land office business on Mondays & Tuesdays, so come on in early before we run out!

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

“How do I describe my style? I like to make realistic angles, perspective, light and shade using impressionistic abstract colors. I like to paint images that have cool stories behind them, many of them from personal experience. I realize that an artist can work on any painting indefinitely and it will never be ‘perfect’ so I decide a painting is finished when I can look at it and say, ‘That looks pretty cool.’ Thus my brand name Pretty Cool Art by cjo; and the obvious double entendre meaning, art which is both pretty & cool.” – CJO
