400 Rabbits

This may be a bar providing Alamo Drafthouse moviegoers with a new foraging alternative, but Chef John Bullington's snacky menu includes interpretations of classic Mexican street food, such as N.Y. Strip alambras and a giant Sonoran hot dog. Brunch is exciting as well, what with tangy avocado tomatilla sauces, and poblanos in the chichimigas.

Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.

It's not just about beer, although they are brewing up some of the best pils and IPAs in Central Texas. It's also about the sophisticated pizza. You can't beat the one with Gulf oysters.
