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.
You can ask for a mini-spatula to scrape your plate. Just saying.
Nothing bad on the menu. Come with a friend(s) and share!
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!
Just get one of each.
Just get everything on the menu!
Go with a group of friends and order the entire menu to share. A perfect way to taste the chef's full range.
Bryce!! I meant bryce. Damn autocorrect..... sorry bryce
Bruce won best new chef in food and wine! Check out this rising star!!!!!
good prices. great food.
Everything is good. New tasting menu (only) is interesting but takes away choice.
Open your mind and bring a friend that is ready for a food adventure.
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.
The chickpea fritters blew my mind. Incredible meal so far and we're only 2 plates in!
The veal glands "sweet breads" we're out of this world delicious.
Fried brussel sprouts, lemon, capers - oh my
small plates, ideal for groups, intimate pairings, order all the dishes and take one bite of each
The prix fixe menu is exciting and delicious.
One of the best restaurants in America. Get the wine pairing and just surrender.
Bryce Gilmore is a magician. No word to describe this place besides incredible. Make sure to check his other spot called Odd Duck!
The pairings make up for bite-sized courses, bring 5 friends so you can have a dedicated table
Food blogger Hank Shaw of Hunter Angler Gardener Cook said he loved the crispy trotter, pork loin, and ham with lentils here.
If you only have one meal in Texas
Probably the best restaurant in Austin. Review coming soon at
Amazing. On my top 3 restaurants List ever. Thumbs up.
Check out their duck, honey & lavender pate....divine!
Fantastic food. Cold service
The desserts are phenomenal; the pastry chef is a genius!
There's nothing like getting served mouth-orgasm food from a sexy man... Do yourself a favor: go, and often if you can...
Make sure you have a steady job.
The new share menu is epic. Ten small dishes made from local producers and nothing disappoints. Beer and wine list is impressive as always.
The new share menu is incredible. Had a very special evening. Visiting with the chefs and staff and the other diners created a wonderful ambiance.
Arrive early or be prepared to wait. But food "lives up to the hype." Fresh ingredients from local farmers. Bring small group and order the seasonal plates!
Trust them on the beer selection. It's no joke.
Just go! This place cannot be missed! You will not be disappointed!
The entire menu was amazing. I didn't have one dish that didn't blow me away. A little expensive but for sure worth it.
Don't miss out on the scrambled eggs. They are FANTASTIC !
Considering how much Austinites love Barley Swine, it's no wonder that Bryce Gilmore, chef of Barley Swine, is a semifinalist for Rising Star Chef of the Year.
One of the best meals of all time. No question!
Really good. Super creative ideas backed by perfect execution and fantastic staff. Lousy name :-) Get the goat.
The goat with the crunchy wild rice is the yummiest thing I have eaten in a while!
Amazing! Every bite was as good as the next!
