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.
The best meal to have here is Sunday brunch. The steak and eggs are just that, a decent-sized rib eye and a couple of eggs, all cooked precisely to order. All seats are alfresco.
Locally owned and family-operated, this place has a number of gluten-free options, and serves local whenever possible. The service is responsive and attentive. Try the chipotle BBQ baby back ribs with apple bacon slaw.
This elegantly casual interior, rich with reclaimed wood, earth tones, and natural light, has a separate lounge and bar area. Locally sourced dishes make this a South Austin delight.
The themed dinner menu changes weekly here, and the wine list is perfectly chosen, with an emphasis on old world wines, as well as a few Texas vintages.
Look for an imaginative menu, clean flavors, creative concepts, and well-executed cooking here. The braised pork belly will make you forget your companion.
The food is of the real-deal, made-from-scratch, Texas-cafe variety. Beef anchors the menu, assisted by chicken-fried everything. Dozens of homemade pies and sturdy coffee round out the offerings.
