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.

How to celebrate a birthday without all the hassle

This East Austin answer to a Parisian brasserie (literally, “brewery,” but practically speaking, 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), 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 11th hour.

So passionate about cocktail craft are the owners here, they boast a Clinebell CB300X2 commercial ice machine that spits out 300-pound blocks of clear, crystal ice–the type ice sculptors use. Each major spirit group gets two pages of the menu, broken down into six preparation methods, and all drinks are $10. Try the Pepino Fizz.
