From the aficianados of Easy Tiger and 24 Diner comes this French bistro, so the excellent breads and pastries come as no surprise. The rotating menu – think stuffed quail, beef Bourguignon, and profiteroles for dessert – brings back fond memories of French fare in Austin. Read our review.

Winner of 2011’s Best of Austin Critics Pick for Best Dinner Destination on a Damp, Cold Night, this place is about as authentically Italian as you can get without jumping on a plane to Parma. Antipasti, Neopolitan pizza, and a good wine list make for good shelter here. Read our review.

Fans of humble hogmeat will adore this pork parlor that offers breakfast all day, and bacon worthy of the name. Local beers and homemade desserts round out your cholesterol and carbohydrate intake. Read our review.

Celebrating sausage on Rainey Street, this place has become a neighborhood staple. Sure, the ample and often unexpected selections of sausage are responsible, but don't forget the creative specials, such as fried chicken sausage atop creamy mashed potatoes. Read our review.

Irish music, excellent pub grub, and Guinness and Smithwick's Ale by the 20-ounce imperial pint make this a great place to watch sports. Check out six 42-inch hi-def plasma TVs and the 65-inch "ScreenZilla" Mitsubishi in back.
