Paggi House


I hear that Paggi House closed this month. That is sad given such a long run but Paggi House had lost its place in Austin Elegance some time ago. I remember when there were only three really elegant restaurants in or near town: Green Pastures, The Inn at Brushy Creek, and Paggi House. All were so expensive that my visits there were for very infrequent special occasions. Austin was certainly not the food destination that it is today.

You can barely see the Paggi House "preserved" in the new condopolis:

There will be some moaning about how the closing of Paggi House is yet another indication that old Austin is slipping away. In reality, that slip occurred the day that the Taco Cabana opened basically on the Paggi House property. That was the true beginning of the end.
