Eclectic cooking in vintage-chic digs
New American · Bouldin Creek · $$$$
The Zagat Review
The “ever-changing” prix fixe menus at this Bouldin Creek destination comprise “locally sourced, sustainable” fare from hot-climate cuisines (Mediterranean, Indian, French) plus craft beers and wine; the "date" -worthy, “intimate” space, bedecked with reclaimed furnishings, vintage crochet curtains and an old drugstore–style bar, seats only 34 people (though there’s a tree-shaded wine garden too), so “make a reservation.”

My favorite restaurant in Austin. 32 seats so make a reservation. The service is great and food is excellent. They have a rotating menu with 13 items that is different every time we go. Great value as well!

A cozy restaurant, romantic and charming. My wife's birthday dinner: greeted with a happy b-day card signed by all the staff...nice touch. Odd collection of wines by the glass, so hard to tell what you're ordering without asking for a taste (maybe a bit too esoteric?). Food is similarly eclectic. Some wild hits: Bread/ Ceviche/ Shrimp/ Fried Quail. Some complete misses: Pork (how can you mess up pork?-- needs to be taken off the menu). Service excellent & knowledgeable. Nice place for a date or special occasion. Expensive considering portion size is small plates. Biggest quible: everything but the communal table is a high top.

Fine dining in Austin that manages to not be too pretentious. Farm to table quality with fresh menus that rotate regularly. We went down the list to try all of the entrees for the day, ranging from a simple ingredient elevated as much as possible (never has a blanched tomato tasted so sweet) to more complex presentations. My only gripe was that the stars of meal are started to come up front; the meat main courses were not particularly memorable (venison heart, pork with kimchi) and the desserts ended up being a bit disappointing as well. Definitely interested in coming back to see what else the menu can offer.
