Hotel Saint Cecilia ensured that all guests were treated to delicious sips and bites, highlighting their new food and beverage menu in collaboration with renowned local restauranteur and owner of Comedor, Chef Philip Speer along with their in-house chef Giovanni Pujol. Chef Speer focused on thoughtfully sourcing from local purveyors to elevate the menu, which reflects Austin’s eclectic style while also highlighting Saint Cecilia’s rock and roll vibe. Guests sipped refreshing ranch water cocktails from Aguasol, a premium tequila made from just three ingredients – sun, spring water, and agave.

The evening proved to be a delightful kickoff for the spring issue as well as a celebration to honor the magazine’s 23rd year publication.
