2314 Rutland, #100 +
This is good, old-fashioned Italian – need we say more? Try the Linguine Luci Johnson. Mangia!
2521 Rutland + 512/719-3377
Cake balls: Not just for breakfast anymore. The menu here features appetizers, salads, entrées, soups, and desserts complemented by a well-chosen wine list, a selection of local craft beers in bottles, and a roster of custom cocktails. Read our review.
3401 Esperanza Crossing #104 + 512/215-3633
Despite most Americans' unfamiliarity with the Balkans, the food won't seem the least bit foreign. It is simply prepared, with clean, fresh flavors that are as comforting as Grandma's Sunday pot roast. The Saturday-only rotisserie whole lamb is cooked over mesquite coals on a spit, seasoned only with salt. Read our review.
11800 N. Lamar Bldg. #3 + 737/703-5990
Sinking a hot-pink plastic spoon into workhorse standards like French Vanilla, Rocky Road, and Rainbow Sherbet, will make your taste buds think it's 1972 again.
12407 N. MoPac + 512/833-8800
For weekday lunch try the tahli platter, with meat or vegetarian style, which includes nine items that change daily. Appetizers like Chicken 65, fried chicken morsels. Read our review.
12407 N. MoPac Ste. 200-B + 512/837-4444

You'll find the same big plates of gooey Tex-Mex goodness that lure you to the Barton Springs location, and quite a bit of the same atmosphere.

The menu here is simple: Gulf seafood is boiled, fried, or prepared in authentic versions of Creole and Cajun specialties. Try the soft-shell crab po'boy.
2013 Wells Branch Pkwy. #106 + 512/252-7556
This restaurant has an extensive wine list with several brave international choices. A light food menu is well-chosen to complement the wines.
