Southwest Bistro at the Hyatt Regency
208 Barton Springs Rd., 512/477-1234
Located on the second level of the Hyatt's atrium, this place draws raves. Maybe it's SWB's commitment to local produce and meats that makes it a local favorite.
The comfy bar, great service, and dazzling display of antipasti near the front door lure us in, and the pasta and heirloom tomatoes do the rest. And if gluten-free pasta is what you're after, you'll find plenty of it here.
