The Backspace

About

The Backspace is a restaurant located in Austin, Texas at 507 San Jacinto Boulevard. This restaurant serves aranciata, lamb & pork meatballs, marinated olives, eggplant caponata, spicy cauliflower, roasted pears, and pepperoni americano.  They also serve butternut squash, house-made mozzarella, bianca, sauvignon, sangiovese, montepulciano rosé, and frappato. They are open every day of the week.

Shawn Cirkiel’s creativity and innovation in the kitchen have made him one of Austin’s most coveted chefs and restaurateurs. Cirkiel opened Parkside in 2008—the city’s first gastro pub—to much fanfare. The accolades continue on for this sophisticated spot, which also houses Cirkiel’s second restaurant, The Backspace on downtown Sixth Street. Shawn then brought an updated version of family-style Southern Italian dining to Central Austin with Olive & June, and most recently, Bullfight, an authentic Spanish restaurant featuring a variety of small, shareable plates off Airport Blvd.
