HELLO CASA BLANKE Kasey Massey BY CANDICE COWIN. PHOTOGRAPHY JOSE RODRIGUEZ. The new Casa Blanke nourishes body and soul. Casa Blanke interiors designed by Amy Zee-Haight J ust in time for the Fall Show, Round Top's first lady Kasey Massey brings healthy, plant- forward fare to the heart of town with the much-anticipated opening of Casa Blanke, a modern, meditative space created to nourish body and soul. Located across from Round Top's town hall, the eatery is named after Massey's late grandfather, James Blanke Simpson. "Casa Blanke — pronounced like Casablanca without the final "a" — was born out my passion for healthy foods and cool spaces," says Massey, wife of Round Top Mayor Mark Massey. Casa Blanke is indeed a cool space. Massey tapped Houston designer Amy Zee-Haight of Amy Zee-Haight Interiors to help her create the space in a palette of soft greens and dusky pinks, inspired by a floral wallcovering by Christopher Farr. Massey enlisted natural-foods chef and fitness pro Erin Stewart to refine the menu, which is geared toward breakfast and light lunch and includes avocado toasts, seasonal salads and savories, superfood smoothies, fresh-squeezed orange juice, spirulina lemonade, and an açaí bowl with house-made granola. Coffee, pastries, and other grab-and-go items round out the menu. Casa Blanke, 102 E. Mill St., Round Top, @casablanke_roundtop. W ith the opening of The Cabin by Wimberly, menfolk now have their own haberdashery in Round Top. Customers frequently asked Wimberly Shook Tribble — proprietor of The Round Top Star, Wimberly Inc., and The Little Cheese Shop in Round Top — where the men's goods were. Now she has an answer. Vintage cowboy boots, vintage jackets, vintage and new hats, and a large assortment of new clothing from Texas- based brands Texas Standard (out of Austin) and Burlebo (of Dripping Springs) are ready to dress the Round Top weekend warrior. Of course, no Texas men's boutique is complete without bar accouterments — The Cabin has vintage barware from the 1920s through the '50s, whiskey carafes, bourbon-flavored toothpicks. and cocktail mixes. The Cabin by Wimberly, open year-round Thursday – Sunday and daily from October 12 – 30, 192 Henkel Circle, @thecabinroundtop.
