Morning started letting everyone know that L’Oca d’Oro had been included in Eater’s Essential 38 for the first time.  We are proud to be on this list with some other great restaurants and institutions.  We are proud to be the only Italian restaurant on the list.  Next stop was a policy meeting with Councilman Greg Casar and other local business leaders to discuss the formation of Austin’s paid sick leave policy.  We already offer paid sick days and hope that this won’t hurt us as it rolls out citywide.  The corollary is that we hope that it will make some of the bad actors start to treat their employees with more humanity.

Finally, at the restaurant where Lester is rendering pork fat, Fiore is sorting through beautiful organic Meyer Lemons for our house Limoncello and to preserve to be used in so many dishes once the citrus goes away.

2.85% Credit Card Convenience

We charge 2.85% on credit cards to help offset processing costs.  This amount is not more than what we pay in fees.  We do not surcharge on debit cards, gift cards or cash payments.
