No Va Kitchen & Bar

Fine Dining, Late Night | $$$

87 Rainey
Austin, 78701
512/382-5651
The three menus here (bar, dinner, and brunch) are a tip of the hat to the city's favorite comfort foods. Pizzas, macaroni and cheese, tacos, and pasta, along with plenty of hearty slow-cooked meats, take center stage. These are gussied up properly to go with the fashion-forward decor and a clever cocktail menu.
