Owner of Jezebel puts East Austin eatery on his plate

Parind Vora, the owner of Austin’s Restaurant Jezebel and Simplicity Wine & Eats, is adding an East Austin eatery to his menu.

On June 18, Vora will take over Bossa Nova, a Brazilian-themed coffeehouse and café at 2121 E. Sixth St. Vora is calling the new concept BRAISE.

The tagline for BRAISE: “Food for the soul as well as the belly.”

An online menu for BRAISE features dishes such as spicy Jamaican jerk pork shoulder over black beans with cilanto gremolata, black bass over soba noodles with whole cumin seed-infused citrus and soy broth, and half a chicken in a white wine reduction with fresh herbs over roasted potatoes.

Ray Shapley, owner of Bossa Nova, says he’s returning to the corporate world because his wife is leaving her job to raise their daughter, who’s due later this year. Bossa Nova is set to close June 11.
