Fodor's Expert Review Olivia

$$$ South Austin Modern American

The menu recently transitioned away from its “hyper-playful” Italian-inspired cuisine and back to its original style of rustic, farm-to-table cooking, thanks to a new chef change-up. Diners can now expect more approachable, yet sophisticated, dishes like steak frites and butternut squash risotto, but the signature sweetbreads have persevered. Artful plates pair well with the cosmopolitan bent of the contemporary, light-filled dining room, accented by steel framing and rich natural woods. Try the six-course tasting menu ($75; Sunday–Thursday) for a real treat. Or indulge in their weekend brunch offerings, like braised beef benedict and “Willie Nelson chicken fried steak and eggs.”
