Cru Food & Wine Bar, 2nd Street District – Austin, Texas

Continuing with the 2nd Street District, here’s the Cru Food & Wine bar, which is next to Jo’s Downtown, which I featured yesterday. I’m back with my Cinematics, which often work better at an angle to the subject, which emphasizes the width.

Yesterday, I mentioned Austin’s Great Streets program which is a development code that specifies oversized sidewalks. You can see that in action here, creating a generous outdoor patio. These kinds of outdoor spaces didn’t exist in Austin, not too long ago. The older sidewalks were really timid, with just enough space for pedestrians but not much else.

Jo’s, next door, has a similar sized patio, which was hard to see in yesterday’s photograph. There are other restaurants along 2nd street with outdoor seating. They add a nice liveliness to the neighborhood. This may not be Paris, with their street cafes, but I think the principle remains the same.
