Moonshine Patio Bar & Grill

American CafeDowntown$25-$40 First Plates 

An American regional menu and a busy bar housed in a sunny, historic old building with limestone rubble walls. The macaroni and cheese will make you forget where you parked, and you know the brunch is as serious as the wait.

Native Family

American CafeDowntown$10-$25

Midwestern details appear in the food as well as the hand-embroidered aprons here. The Cubicano uses the classic components of a Cuban sandwich, but with ballpark Bertman's mustard and "Detroit Pickles." The cheese and charcuterie boards use La Quercia salami from Iowa and Smoking Goose cured sausage from Indiana. The menu is far from predictable, though, as you'll find sardines on toast served as a zesty compote.

605 Brazos (inside the Firehouse Lounge), 512/920-2019
