East Side Show Room

1100 E. Sixth
Austin, 78702
Hours: Sun.-Fri., 5pm-12mid; Sat., 5pm-1am
It's been around for a few years, but still feels like a discovery. Look for upscale soul cooking, e.g., curried grits and greens, sweet pulled pork, and grass-fed short ribs. All ingredients are locally grown, and the condiments are all made in-house. The fresh juice cocktails go down nicely in an atmosphere described as "silent movie house meets Speakeasy".

East 12th Kafe

Locals who lament the scarcity of down-home dinettes these days, who search for that perfect platter of "meat and two", should take heart. The former home of Sallie's, just such a beloved joint, is now polished up and slinging three hots, seven days a week. Great folks, good food, go there.

11th Street Station

Light-filled and cheery with brightly colored walls and an open floor plan, this place serves up a raved-over crust on fried items as well as the best peach cobbler in these parts.
