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. 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. "I imagined Casa Blanke would be a hub of activity and connection — a gathering place where you can feel energized and inspired, yet grounded and at ease," Massey says. Expect Casa Blanke to be like home — or maybe your über-chic great-aunt's house — but with a private chef whipping up healthy treats in the kitchen. Massey tapped 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, which stars locally sourced ingredients: greens and veggies from Ives Creek Organics in Bellville, honey from Mitchell's Bees in La Grange, organic farm eggs from the tiny hamlet of Plum.
