5-Course Local Meets Global Tasting Event

Opened this past October, this Autry Park eatery enjoyed maximum buzz, making it onto “Most Anticipated” Lists for Eater, Paper City, and Houston Chronicle. Chef/Owner Kirthan Shenoy delivers an approachable bistro experience with influences of Texas flavors, Gulf Coast ingredients, and a nod to his Indian upbringing. Both Chef Shenoy and his wife Kripa, Auden’s executive pastry chef, spent years working in New York City at Michelin-Starred restaurants like Marea, which won a James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant in 2010, under the tutelage of celebrated chef Michael White. Now, at Auden, Chef Shenoy is delighting diners with starters like scallion hotcakes and crawfish samosas, and mains like lamb kabab with dill raita, shrimp & grits, and cauliflower romesco with toasted pepitas. The desserts too are very special, like chai affogato and très leches cake with mango cardamom gelée and brown butter crumbs. Texas Monthly lauded Auden’s food as “innovative” and “beautifully presented,” so, naturally, we are excited to visit and to have Chef Shenoy share his food ideas with us.
