Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Next stop for the Chef film caravan: Austin, TX. Eater Austin reports that actor/writer/director Jon Favreau is now in town filming at Franklin Barbecue where he has posted a Vine video (of course). Barbecue guru Aaron Franklin is featured in the Vine; Eater Austin was on the scene today and can confirm Franklin was being filmed. So maybe he'll end up in the movie? Favreau also posted a Vine showing the infamous line to get into the restaurant.

Favreau's food trucking mentor and LA chef Roy Choi was in New Orleans with the Chef cast, and is now in Austin where he also tweeted photos from Franklin Barbecue. The trip to Austin follows filming in New Orleans, Miami, and Los Angeles. If you spot the El Jefe Cubanos food truck or any cast members running around town, do let us know. Below, Favreau's Vines from Franklin Barbecue:
