Italic Brick Oven Chicken

Italic Austin is opening this week! Hooray! Finally more italian food in Austin, not to mention it is from ELM Group, who is responsible for some of my favorite bread in town, i.e. Easy Tiger. So an addition of an Italian restaurant seems like a natural fit for the group.
