1. The Hightower 1209 E 7th St, Austin, TX 78702 (East Austin)

The dishes at High Tower -- a friendly neighborhood spot in East Austin -- run the gamut from Tex-Mex to Asian, and though their flavor and presentation could compete with the best of Austin's white-hot culinary scene, they're still affordable enough to order any night of the week, not just for special occasions. Grab a spot on the outdoor patio and try the ever-popular and comforting roasted pork jowl, a Korean hot pot filled with rice, egg yolk, cucumber, pickled shallots, and house Sriracha. Another favorite? Grilled scallops with avocado and grapefruit.

An impressive wine list, intriguing dishes like Wood Oven Bouillabaisse with squid, clams, and blue prawn, and a complimentary valet make laV the ideal spot to go when you want to feel like a celebrity... then treat yourself to a Meyer Lemon Cream and feel like a slightly larger celebrity.

5. Icenhauer's 83 Rainey St, Austin, TX 78701

Icenhauer's is a casual Rainy Street suds spot, a two-roomed affair given a living-room vibe via wood walls, a chandelier made out of wine glasses, and vintage lime-green/cream-colored furniture. There's an extensive drink menu featuring infused liquors and seasonal drinks. Look out for live music nights and chicken and waffles on Sundays.
