Josey's at the Lakeway Resort
101 Lakeway Dr., Lakeway, 78734, 512/261-7323
Surrounded by panoramic windows and a superb view of Lake Travis, the bar and dining room offer a bright, unwittingly retro atmosphere for gussied-up comfort food with a Southern accent, including a fried-green-tomato BLT, crab-cake sliders, and a variety of down-home sides. Don't miss farm-to-table Wednesdays: Three local, seasonal, chef-prepared courses for $25.
This sunny, lovely bistro specializes in French treats like tartines, mussels, and boeuf bourguignon.
3663 Bee Cave Rd., 512/306-1668
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.
Barton Creek Square, 2901 Capital of TX Hwy. S., 512/691-3500
Enjoy a very Texan meal here with locally sourced ingredients and Southern-inspired flavors.
3600-D Capital of TX Hwy. N., 512/351-9399
