Located at the South Congress Hotel, the likably retro Central Standard is less devoted to making things new than to doing things well, excelling at thoroughly American hearty mains, proper salads, and a few well-composed but secondary sides.

Café No Sé

Located in the South Congress hotel, this American eatery offers innovative takes on classics and globally-influenced fare. The playful pastry program is not to be missed.

Little Barrel and Brown

Fried chicken steeped in buttermilk for two days; and excellent risotto with forest mushrooms and spinach await you here.

1716 S. Congress, 512/582-1229

Magnolia Cafe

This second location packs 'em in 24/7 like the original. If you can't decide between a garden or bison burger, get the gingerbread pancakes or try the Neptunian Landscape.
