Named after the grandmothers of chef Shawn and his wife, Olive & June opened in 2012 with an emphasis on making every pasta, as many as 12 different kinds, in house daily.  If this doesn’t make Olive & June unique enough, the 3 story building is enveloped by a 200 year old oak tree with 4 different dining areas inside and out.  Olive & June has the largest and most diverse selection of Italian wine, Amari, and Grappa in the city, but to central Austin’s regulars it’s equally well known for its formal yet friendly service, a hallmark of all Shawn Cirkiel restaurants.  Celebrating the cuisine and culture of Southern Italy, expect to see new menu features daily focusing on fresh vegetables, pasta, and unique platters for the table where everything is meant to be shared.

Go to Parkside Projects for more about who we are.

 

Shawn Cirkiel’s creativity and innovation in the kitchen have made him one of Austin’s most coveted chefs and restaurateurs. Seven years ago, Cirkiel opened Parkside—the city’s first gastro pub—to much fanfare. The accolades continue on for this sophisticated spot, which is housed in a converted two-story space on East Sixth Street, as they do for Cirkiel’s subsequent ventures: the backspace, a widely popular Neapolitan-style pizzeria, olive & june, an updated version of family-style Southern Italian dining, and Bullfight, an authentic Spanish restaurant featuring a variety of small, shareable plates. Cirkiel’s passion for local and seasonal food extends beyond the scope of his restaurants and has become a driving force behind his notable community engagement.

Cirkiel’s devotion to smart (sustainable) cooking and the community is evident by his involvement in many projects, including an initiative at Austin’s Highland Park Elementary, where he has helped develop healthy-eating, exercise, and gardening programs. Cirkiel is also a founding chef of the Sustainable Food Center’s Farmers Market in downtown and a board member and secretary for the Sixth Street Austin Association, which has been fundamental in raising funds to restore the legendary district. And while the chef maintains a high profile around town and in the media—he’s been noted in numerous publications, including Southern Living, Food Arts, Cooks Illustrated, Bon Appetit and the Los Angeles Times—Cirkiel doesn’t stay out of the kitchen for long.

As a longtime protégé of Chef Cirkiel’s, Chef Justin Rupp has led the Olive & June kitchen as Executive Chef for four years, creating fresh, seasonal and authentic dishes for the Southern Italian-style neighborhood eatery.

Chef Rupp spent five years helping Chef Cirkiel hone parkside into the success it is today, assisted in opening Chef Cirkiel’s charming Neapolitan pizzeria, the backspace, and has been integral in developing the rustic and comforting Italian dishes Olive & June is renowned for. In fact, Chef Rupp accompanied Chef Cirkiel to New York City to conduct culinary research before the opening of olive & june — an excursion that found the two chefs immersed in authentic Italian cuisine and culture, and a trip that provided plenty of inspiration for their creation of the Olive & June menu. As Executive Chef at Olive & June, Chef Rupp manages the kitchen, develops recipes and personally handpicks ingredients, among a variety of other endless chef duties. As part of his dedication to keeping the restaurant’s offerings fresh, seasonal and unique, Chef Rupp creates a new menu each week for Olive & June’s wildly successful Sunday night family dinners, incorporating traditional Italian-style fish dishes, fresh and robust vegetables and house-made pastas paired with locally raised proteins.

Hiring quality over quantity is not an HR decision but our company culture. Most of our staff have been with us more than a few years and many since the beginning. That so many of our managers and chefs began their career with us as servers and cooks is a great source of pride. But we are even more proud of how many leaders of the best restaurants in our city and beyond first developed in our company.

While we love to promote from within, we love meeting new people to add new talent and perspective to our culture.  Experience is important, but not paramount; being a good person matters most.  Our staff love coming to work and many have made life-long friendships, because we hire good people first and foremost.  Secondly, we treat them with respect and like family, and that’s why they stay with us so long.  Beyond our food and service this the part of our company we are most proud of.

Whether you want to wash dishes or run our kitchen we want to meet you.  Please email us your resume and tell us about yourself at careers@parksideprojects.com
