Fodor's Expert Review Josephine House

$$$ Central Austin, Downtown, and Capitol Area Modern American

The adorable little sister of Jeffrey’s occupies a beautifully restored, light-filled bungalow next door to the Clarksville fine dining institution, offering a slightly more approachable, but still sophisticated option for cocktails and modern American cuisine. Locals love to sit at the patio or front lawn tables during the daily happy hour and reservations are recommended for the weekly Monday Steak Frites Night (6–10 pm), when a three-course meal, featuring a choice of steak (from ribeye to tartare) costs less than $50. Nightly supper menus are prix-fixe, lunch is served on weekdays, and a weekend brunch features freshly baked pastries and seasonal dishes like sweet potato pancakes and coddled eggs served in miniature cast iron pots.
