La Traviata Italian Bistro
314 Congress, 512/479-8131
The sublime starter of roasted beets with goat cheese is an indication of how the food served here is a model of perfect preparation and clean flavors. Save room for their desserts.

This is a restaurant for the big ballers, the heavy hitters, the corporate accounts; basically, for anyone who wants to make like an old-school Rockefeller and eat some of the best food available anywhere.

This grand-mère of Austin's French restaurants offers classic bistro fare. After all these years, we're still partial to the salade lyonnaise and the elegant mousse au chocolat.
