Today our city’s favorite chef, Paul Qui, will be honored in the Texas legislature for “his work as a chef and restauteur.” Qui already holds an official key to the city, and he’s well-known for his creative dishes at Uchiko, his Asian fusion from the East Side King trailers and his highly anticipated forthcoming restaurant qui. From the press release:
"Chef Qui will be presented with House Concurrent Resolution 78 by the 83rd Texas Legislature for his achievements including James Beard's 2012 'Best Chef, Southwest,' title winner of Top Chef Season 9 and 'Food and Wine' magazine's 2012 Empire Builder." 
As Senator Kirk Watson said, "Austin has long been known for its creativity. The same forces that have made our city rightly famous for music and film talent are now boosting Austin as a culinary capital as well.”

Amen.
