  1. The bartenders at Péché try to make a lot of their ingredients from scratch. The following ingredients are all house-made: bitters, limoncello, gingerale, syrups, shrubs (syrups made with vinegar), and foams. By making so many ingredients themselves, they ensure that your experience at Péché will be completely unique from anywhere else in the world.

  6. When one speaks about a topic which is controversial it is important to understand the concept of a paradigm, or underlying worldview. It can be thought of as a framework of beliefs which are so taken for granted that most people are not even aware they have made any assumptions. A paradigm helps us to make sense of the world around us. In terms of science, it not only determines what is true, but how truth itself is determined. There is an obvious “catch 22” to this. If one doesn’t recognize the underlying assumptions made with a paradigm, it has the potential to limit our perception of the world, what we can discover, and how we can determine that knowledge.

  7. We ran into dozens of social regulars, but spent most of the time catching up with our dear friend Sean Massey, whose stepmother, collector and artist, Pat Brown, passed away from cancer early Monday.

  11. In 1918, Prohibition sent our country’s most brilliant mixologists underground and overseas. Many of these American artisans fled to Europe where their recipes would make places like London’s Savoy Hotel famous. For decades, Mixology was largely lost in the states. Bars served unimaginative mixtures to patrons who never knew the classic concoctions enjoyed only a generation before. To experience the real thing, I, like many others, traveled abroad. While in my travels a curious spirit caught my interest; long prohibited in the states, Absinthe had now become available, and Peche’ is Austin’s only place to experience it in its true form. Together, with the brilliant culinary mind of Chef Jason Dodge, I offer my friends the most unique cocktail experience in Austin, alongside a stunning menu of European comfort dishes. A revolution has begun in the Sprits community and Peche’ brings together both food and drink for a truly unique evening. Genuine appreciation for skillfully crafted libations and cuisine has been reborn in Austin. It is my sincere wish not only to provide our patrons with quality fare, but to educate them as well; to bring this knowledge to the people. My staff and I not only welcome questions, we encourage them. Quality is, after all, for everyone. Peche’ brings the enjoyment ethic of the old world back to life, right here today, in Austin’s historic Warehouse district.

  12. Péché first opened as a new home for absinthe, the much-maligned spirit that had been banned in the U.S. since 1912 and was reapproved in 2007. The emphasis was a large selection of absinthe from around the world and craft cocktails in pre-Prohibition style. The space was reimagined as a comfortable yet elegant retro-European space, with couches and coffee tables interspersed in the dining room to create cozy hangouts that break up the long, narrow space. The food seemed to be a second thought, but fortunately, things have changed in that regard.

  13. But don’t be fooled, some of Austin’s best awaits you here as well. Our finest Italian food can be found at Enoteca (casual) and her sister restaurant Vespaio (fine dining) . One of the best burgers in the world can be found at HopDaddy’s and if you are a cowboy at heart, you will find heaven at Allen’s Boots .

  14. We knew would be too late for lunch (it was around about 2pm) but as we had heard great reviews about this restaurant we thought we would stop and say ‘hello’ and have a look at a menu. Outside there were about half a dozen people finishing their lunch. We walked in the door and we were greeted with what we assume to be the chef having lunch at the bar! Her first response was ‘the opening times are on the door.’ There was certainly no warm welcome. We were greeted like snow in summer! We understand the food is good but a lesson in hospitality is badly needed. We will not be recommending this restaurant.
