Where to Eat in Austin Right Now
The gist: The open-concept kitchen helmed by renowned Chef Jakub Czyszczon is Austin’s sexiest date spot—dress up and get prepared to be wined and dined.
The food: Entrees off the grill include Roasted Duck Breast Rossini with foie gras, and Whole Grilled Branzino, but it’s the steaks that take center stage (Eye of Rib, Tomahawk or Porterhouse—all incredible). Side anything with Tater Tots, especially if you love cheese and black truffle. The beverage list spans select cocktails, wine, and beer curated to complement the upmarket digs.
The cost: Starters and sides (including caviar service) $8 - $120, mains $23 - $140, cocktails $16 - $24, wine and beer prices vary.
The 10 Best Steakhouses in Austin
We’ve been raving about Garrison for quite some time now, but that’s because it’s never failed to wow on all accounts. Its boudoir is a winner for romance, its wine cabinet is stellar, and chef de cuisine Jakub Czysczon is the resident master behind Texas Post Oak flame-grilled steak. Splurge on a 32-ounce Prime Niman Ranch Dry-aged Tomahawk with Smoked Onion Pomme Puree, Blistered Shishitos, and house G1 sauce to taste, if you really want to sample downtown’s finest.
