Cafe Bistro at Nordstrom
Barton Creek Square, 2901 Capital of TX Hwy. S., 512/691-3500
The most elegant food at the mall, with a menu strong on ladies-who-lunch fare. Salads and sandwiches are exceptional, but more substantial offerings are there for the asking.
This sunny, lovely bistro specializes in French treats like tartines, mussels, and boeuf bourguignon.

Enjoy a very Texan meal here with locally sourced ingredients and Southern-inspired flavors.
3600-D Capital of TX Hwy. N., 512/351-9399
