Beautiful garden setting with peacocks and Asain phesants roaming the grounds. Diverse menu apealing to all tastes with an array of desserts and specialty drinks.
Bruce Auden continues to be the city's premier apostle of world-wise regional cooking, and there is no better place to get one's gastronomic feet and whistle wet than at the sinuous bar. Here, the noodle menu includes such enticements as chicken fried oysters with squid ink pasta and pancetta, and a red coconut curry with egg noodles, shrimp, and snap peas - which can be paired to appropriate wines by the glass from Biga's ample list. - Ron Bechtol

A South American chain that has managed to get itself up in the States. Tasty chicken tacos. Kind of fast-foodish.
Decent Texas barbecue and beer-joint burgers in a sports-centric atmosphere. The strong St. Mary's ties keep it local and genuine.
Classy Southwestern food for those with a big budget. The lighting has been lowered to the point that only a sharp eye can read the wine, dinner and dessert menus.
The cowgirl outfits and suffocating ranch memorabilia aren’t satirical, podna, and the dirt-bottom prices are the real-deal, too. Don’t feel like you have to finish the enormous and satisfying Porterhouse in one sitting.
Can you get any more generic. But actually, the food is good, if you don't mind the price.
The concept of the restaurant is everything old school, using what they had and doing as they did before the break of the industrial revolution: approximately 1850. There are no blenders, mixers, choppers, ice cream machines, deep fryers, burr sticks, nor anything else with a motor or a plug. The menu will move absolutely in lockstep with the seasons. Every perishable ingredient we serve here comes from within 150 miles of this place, was raised in the old way, and has been handled in the old way. We know the rancher, and we know the farmer. We buy from them directly to keep the supply chain small and visible.
We buy whole animals, cut and dry-age them ourselves, and preserve them in the old, tried-and-true ways of the Victorian age, and the traditions that came before them. We smoke our own bacon, grind our own sausage, make our own orange marmalade, and can strawberries in the springtime. All fats used here we either rendered ourselves, or have been naturally crushed from a seed. When possible we will favor Texan products in this also, because money spent in your community stays in your community.
It's all about the meat, and big-personality side dishes, at this nouveau-Southwestern member of the Eddie V's chains. -- Richard Teitz (04/09)

Austin-based Bamako Airlines has just released their self-titled EP —an engaging collection of mostly solid AfroPop covers from Algeria, Madagascar, Ethiopia, and Mali. What I’m really looking forward to is their next album, which reportedly will be more centered on their promising originals (listen to Bamako Airlines’ “Desséché” for clues). Singer Meera Chandy, trumpeter Brian Carr, guitarists Chris Vestre and Michael Goldsmith, drummer David Justh, Sexto Sol bassist Greg Goodman, plus guest Eddie Lehwald on trombone (cross your fingers that they can also bring Guinea percussionist Aboubacar Sylla, who recorded on the album) are at their best in a live setting, and cozy Carmens is perfect for them — you could do a lot worse than having a sangría while Bamako Airlines is all over your ass.
