A 400 Rabbits

Gastro Pub, Interior MexicanSouth$10-$25 First Plates 

This may be a bar providing Alamo Drafthouse moviegoers with a new foraging alternative, but Chef John Bullington's snacky menu includes interpretations of classic Mexican street food, such as N.Y. Strip alambras and a giant Sonoran hot dog. Brunch is exciting as well, what with tangy avocado tomatilla sauces, and poblanos in the chichimigas.

E Easy Tiger Downtown

American Cafe, Bakery, Gastro PubDowntown$10-$25 First Plates

G Gourmands

Gastro Pub, Pub GrubLower East$10-$25

East-siders come to play pool, or to flex their cerebral muscle with the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz on Wednesday nights. With a full menu of sandwiches and soup and an encyclopedic beer selection, it definitely feels more like a cozy pub than a destination bar. But people come out raving about the menu: Crisp salads, and a crazy sandwich selection. Power outlets in half of the booths, and an amazing range of beers keep the place busy until closing.

2316 Webberville Rd., 512/610-2031

K Quickie Pickie

Coffeehouse, Deli/Sandwich Shop, Gastro PubEast$10-$25

There are still some eclectic grocery items here, but the real story is 24 local and craft beer taps and a collection of small plates for happy hour and late-night foragers alike. Breakfast tacos emerge at 7am on weekdays here with a sassy sweet potato option, before the sandwiches steal the spotlight. Wine alternatives include three whites, three reds, a sparkling, as well as a rose by the glass. We wonder if we can still get a Slushie...
