Fodor's Expert Review Wink

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

Tucked in a small strip mall off Lamar Boulevard, this petite, sleek restaurant is as dedicated to excellence in service and artful dishes as it is to fresh, quality ingredients from local purveyors. We suggest putting your trust in chef Eric Poltzer's tasting menu (vegetarian options available), which changes daily. Each course brings a surprising mix of flavors, from grilled antelope with sweet potatoes to seared dayboat scallops in a lemongrass-red-curry broth. Succulent options like the foie gras-stuffed quail are ideal for special occasions. The adjacent wine bar is a more casual way to experience the full menu or just small bites and selections from the formidable wine list.
