    The elegant, inviting Paggi House has just about everything going for it. Try Paggi’s take on sweetbreads: Softly roasted with cremini mushrooms, it melts into a creamy sherry vinegar sauce. Read more

    There aren't very many vegetarian options but you can ask for the chef to make an amazing veggie dish based off of the days specials. It's good and always different. Its about $25-30.

    You can't get more Texan than a spicy margarita. Try the Basil Chili Pepper Margarita with Sauza Blue, serrano, basil, agave, pepper, and lime.

    Your Perfect Day in Austin wouldn't be complete without a beef tenderloin at Paggi House. Get here early so that you can watch the city's resident bats venture out from under Congress Ave. Bridge!

    Expensive wine list, but many good values! Try a prosecco (sparkling, Italy), viognier (other whites, Provence), Tavel (rose, France), malbec (South America, Mendoza) More wine tips:

    If you are drinking wine, definitely get the cheese plate to go along with it. The different types of cheese compliment the wine nicely.
