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. review

Is the kind of place you pass by without noticing. Next time you shop on West Anderson, stop in for a great prime rib or a filling, fresh Thai steak salad. review
2408 W. Anderson + 512/451-7333
Owners Stewart Scruggs and Mark Paul (also of Wink) created this upscale eatery as a replacement for the venerable Zoot. Happily, their comfort food menu has not abandoned resourceful gastronomy. Four versions of mac and cheese, burgers, steak frites, and pot roast are standouts, but the the crispy-skinned roasted chicken breast takes the starring role. The prices on this menu are lower, guests can now dress casually, and the food is still dependably delicious. Well-made drinks and a skillful wine list with many by-the-glass options makes this local hangout a worthy destination. review
