Chef Sonya Coté's BYOB restaurant is set beside a plowed field and under a canopy of ancient pecan trees on Springdale Farm. On Springdale Farmer's Stand Days (Wednesday and Saturday mornings) enjoy a breakfast/brunch after buying locally-made goods and fresh produce. On Friday and Saturday evenings, enjoy a prix fixe. Both of the meals are made with ingredients reflecting the current harvest.

Austin, in one way or another, has it escargot-ing on

Try something completely different this year

This East Austin answer to a Parisian brasserie (literally “brewery,” but practically speaking, a restaurant) embraces early 20th-century roots (the cottage itself was built in 1937) and creates a picturesque vintage experience. Fit with a cozy bar, wooden tables, and Great Depression-era decor, the disco balls on the patio bring the ambience back to our current millennium. Paired with its late-night dining of standout French bistro fare (steak frites, escargots à la bourguignonne) are readings (Richard Hell), spoken word (Jello Biafra), and the occasional midnight show (Louis Armstrong singer Jewel Brown) for the lucky few that join the party at the eleventh hour.
