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.

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.

Charming yard space hosts two different concepts. In the front, L'Estelle offers French-inspired comfort food. In the back, the Drafting Room pours beer and wine.
