One of my favorite restaurants in Austin. Creative, fresh cuisine with a menu that changes daily. Although pricey compared to some other places well worth the visit. Next time I am going to try their bar food at their back across the hallway.

The red snapper tonight was perfect. A thin crisp peppery crust over a generous serving of succulent mild tender fish. A sweet soy sauce and a sautéed of yellow squash completed the dish. A bowl of edemame with crunchy kosher salt added another veggie to...More
