Seafood, service and panache are pretty as a pearl at this homage to yacht clubs on the Northeast Coast. One of Austin’s original high-end patio destinations still delivers the city’s best fish, punched up with Texas style and zing. Case-in-point, the crab Louie served as luscious lumps of crab meat piled upon crunchy fried green tomatoes and served with lemony aioli. Market fish selections are ordered to preference and served with spicy garlic-herb salsa verde, house
tartar or red chimichurri sauce. Sit at the cold bar and watch the expert oyster shuckers at work. At night and weekend brunch hours, the patio is ideal for South Congress people-watching with a tropical cocktail in hand.
