About Le Politique

Translated to ‘The Politician,’ Le Politique is both a nod to Austin’s roots as a capital city and an homage to Texas and French politicians, past & present, who roam these very streets. Specific inspiration was drawn from the Count Dubois de Saligny, a French diplomat known for being quite the rabble-rouser in 19th-century Texas. Vive les pigs!
