We have been long time admirers of Camille’s gorgeous lifestyle and entertaining blog, Camille Styles, and are honored to have her sharing some favorites today! Camille and her contributors have the best tips for throwing a perfect gathering, or cooking an inspired meal. We hope you love her website just as much as we do!

Favorite restaurant? Austin is such an amazing food city, it would be impossible to choose just one! Uchiko serves the most innovative sushi – every bite is perfection. Fonda San Miguel is a classic interior Mexican spot with to-die-for tacos al pastor. And my brand new favorite, Elizabeth Street Café, is Vietnamese-French fusion in the most charming setting – I get their almond croissants for breakfast and banh mi for lunch. (Here’s my ultimate guide to Austin eats: http://camillestyles.com/2012/guide-to-austin-eats/)

Favorite savory dish? Grilled margherita pizza.

Favorite sweet? Vanilla bean ice cream with fresh peaches.

Drink of choice? Agave margarita with salt. (Pssst- Camille’s recipe here)

Favorite Austin summer activity? Shopping at the farmers’ market, then strolling downtown for breakfast tacos on a Saturday morning.

Summer entertaining tip? I plan my summer menus around seasonal, fresh produce – when they’re displayed in an artful way, they need very little else! See how I made a simple fruit platter party-worthy at this recent dinner party I threw at my house.

Thanks, Camille! Austin is a city that has so much to offer, and that I can’t wait to visit someday.
