    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

    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.

    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.

    The chickpea fritters blew my mind. Incredible meal so far and we're only 2 plates in!

    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!

    Kimberly Barrero · September 16, 2013

    Trust them on the beer selection. It's no joke.

    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.

    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.

    Absolutely amazing small plates. Typically a bit of a wait, but come, put your name in, then go next door to Henri's or Horseshoe Lounge for a drink to pass the time.

    Let the waitress recommend plates – WD40 would approve. And nab the best spots in the place: at the bar with full view of the kitchen.

    small plates but super tasty. the wine bar next door is a great place to have a drink while you wait.

    Delicious food and wine. Our most expensive meal in Austin by far, but a great experience. We went on Halloween and all the waitresses were dressed up and super attentive. Fun. Get the pig face!

    Make sure you ask for their little spatulas - they come in different colors! You will need one to app up all the goodness on the plate.
