Wexler's: Cal-Q? (Just Don't Call It Friday's)

Oh, the joy of being a restaurant publicist in a city where a BBQ joint is never just a BBQ joint—chefs opening places where "BBQ is the end product but it’s not the marquee."

Watch the video below to see chef Charlie Kleinman of the soon-to-be Wexler's explaining his BBQ-but-different concept to Jared Rivera of Rivera P.R.

Now, the kicker: How to explain his restaurant concept in one sentence or less. Any takers? (As an editor, I'd disagree. Symantics are everything.) But let it be said right here and now: Wexler's is NOT a rib shack!

(Plus, own wine and spirits editor, and Austin native, Jordan Mackay recently traveled to the best pits of Texas. Read all about it on Tablehopper.)
