    Wide range of cocktails with plenty of beers on tap. Really enjoyed the Korean BBQ Steak, Asparagus & Squid Fries. Be sure to get two desserts as they are delicious and on the smaller side.

    It's expensive but some plates are worthy. Korean bbq is sn excellent meat plate. The risotto and the noodles are also very tasty. For snacks the peppers and the edamame are surprisingly good.

    The inventive and playful Swift's Attic has been making waves in Austin's dining scene. From squid "fries" to to foie "PB&J," their focus is on the dining mash-up. [Eater 38 Member]

    Friendly welcome even for a late check in. Chili soup was too big, but the filet was fantastic. The glazed carot is use less. The glass of cote du Rhone was good. Not cheap but it is quality.

    From grilled quail with Southern hot water grits, to Peruvian scallop tiradito, Japanese chicken tsukune, and even Canadian tater tots poutine, the menu is wildly diverse, but somehow it all works.
