    Food & Wine Best New Chef 2011 winner Bryce Gilmore's South Lamar restaurant lives up to the hype. Go with a group and order everything on the seasonal small plates menu. [Eater 38 Member]

    Another of the great places opened during the Great Restaurant Rush of '08-10 in Austin. Only complaint is that it's a very intimate setting, so you better get a reservation or be prepared to wait.

    Get anything on the menu, I mean anything. You will not be disappointed. If Jeffery is working at the bar sit at the bar close to him. He'll make your night a ton of fun. Read more

    Every bite is so precious! Don't expect a Texas-supersized meal, but rather plan to take your tastebuds on the joyride of their comfort-loving lives. Magic on tap and artistes de sabor in the kitchen!

    Small plates, small space: Only 34 seats, so expect a wait. It’s worth it. A farm-to-table ethos and thoughtful flavor combinations distinguish this first brick & mortar from Bryce Gilmore. Read more

    Great “locavore” hot spot! Chef Bryce Gilmore creates memorable small tapas-style plates made for sharing and enjoying. A foodie gathering spot. The space is small so arrive early or be ready to wait.

    Ridiculously delish, artfully crafted and albeit tiny small plates. Go with a fat wallet and be prepared to eat your way through the menu. GREAT craft beer selection as well.
