Arro

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.

Bess Bistro on Pecan

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.

Chez Nous

This grand-mère of Austin's French restaurants offers classic bistro fare. After all these years, we're still partial to the salade lyonnaise and the elegant mousse au chocolat.
