Transcript September 19/8 GAY AUSTIN ~\ "| A restaurant for gay austin By HARVEY NEVILLE Have you ever tried to enjoy an excellent dinner at a posh Austin restaurant with someone whom you are really close to (or want to be) when suddenly your stomach starts feeling queasy? It's a common feeling. You have realized that your wait-person is rushing you through the meal, and that most of the people around you seem to be feasting their homophobic eyes on the two of you rather than minding their own business. Want relief? GO DOWN to the Private Cellar Restaurant on E. 6th St tonight (unless it's Monday) and enjoy the good company, low prices and generally well prepared food. The PC restaurant 1s brought to you by the same folks who run the popular bar by the same name (which is adjacent to the eatery). The restaurant has given new life to the old building which the Waller Creek Catering Co. vacated a year ago. Diners can take 1n the sidewalk sights marching by on Sixth Street through beautiful glass doors. The dark hardwood floors, brick walls and softly lighted interior work together to produce a romantic mood. You can also enjoy dinner with a view on the back balcony which overlooks the patio behind the PC bar. GEORGE, the proprietor, opened his restaurant on Aug. 4, and says that business has been good. So good, in fact, that the dining hours are about to be expanded from 7 until 11:00 p.m., to 5 until midnight. The PC restaurant is also open afterhours on Fridays and Saturdays until 4:00 a.m. Entrees range from Chef's Salad ($2.95) to Chateaubriand (for two) at $12.50. The variety of dishes and their prices compare favorably with the selection of many equally (or more) expensive restaurants. You can depend on four standard entrees whatever day you go. In addition to the Chef's Salad and the Chateaubriand, there's Shrimp Scampi ($5.95) and Roast Pork. The Balcony at the Private Cellar Restaurant Chef Howard also prepares three specials daily, and the diner may be offered anything from a large portion of Crab Newburg ($3.95), to Chicken Fried Steak. MOST SERVINGS are moderately sized and are accompanied by a soup and salad. Unfortunately, the vegetables taste as 1f they were an afterthought, or at least forgotten while everything else cooked. The Private Cellar restaurant provides a long-awaited service for Austin's gay community. The food itself might actually take third place to the concept of a gay restaurant, and to the warm, comfortable atmosphere which has been established at PC's eatery.
