No Va Kitchen & Bar
87 Rainey, Austin, 78701, 512/382-5651
Hours: Tue.-Sat., 6pm-11pm; Sun., 5pm-11pm
The three menus here (bar, dinner, and supper) are a tip of the hat to the city's favorite comfort foods. Macaroni and cheese, pasta, along with plenty of hearty slow-cooked meats, take center stage. These are gussied up properly to go with the fashion-forward decor and a clever cocktail menu.
No Va is a promising addition to the Rainey Street District
