Juliet Italian Kitchen

Chef Jacob Weaver does a bang-up job with Italian classics like house-made pasta and pizza, but his creativity and craft truly shine on the rotating features menu. A knowledgeable and warm bar staff helps navigate the 10-plus-page wine list, and they’ll effortlessly whip out a perfect egg-white sour. Classy but comfortable, Juliet has panache without pretentiousness, which is what makes it one of our favorites.

1500 Barton Springs Rd.
