Balkan Cafe & Grill

Global ContemporaryNorth$10-$25 First Plates 

Despite most Americans' unfamiliarity with the Balkans, the food won't seem the least bit foreign. It is simply prepared, with clean, fresh flavors that are as comforting as Grandma's Sunday pot roast. The Saturday-only rotisserie whole lamb is cooked over mesquite coals on a spit, seasoned only with salt.

11800 N. Lamar Bldg. #3, 737/703-5990

Geraldine's

Global ContemporaryDowntown

Geraldine’s, the restaurant tucked inside Hotel Van Zandt, doesn’t really reach its peak until the low stage near the kitchen lights up. It’s as intimate as Rainey Street’s Blackheart, but instead of cramming up against 30 people, you’re sitting at a table having the best ceviche of your life. Though only open since November 2015, its 260 seats are destined for local ubiquity from singer-songwriters, pop acts, and who knows what during SXSW.

605 Davis, 512/476-4755
