An incredible cocktail menu isn't surprising given that the place originally opened as an absinthe bar. Today you'll find an ample dinner menu.
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.

European, Cajun, and Southern dishes are prepared with organic, local, and homegrown ingredients. A great selection of beers and spirits as well as a well-thought-out wine list complete the experience.
