Austin: Congress

The city may be stubbornly casual, but foodies can still get their fine dining fix here. Chef David Bull’s set menus feature items like short rib ravioli with burrata, white lobster bisque and veal sliders (albeit sliders made with sweetbreads and black truffle jus). The restaurant’s elegant décor couldn’t be further from the town’s usual barbecue and Tex-Mex joints, but that doesn’t mean it’s stuffy: Bar manager Adam Bryan specializes in “implementation of pre-prohibition drink history into modern beverage menus.” Translation: a good time can definitely be had by all.
COST: Tasting menu is $75 - $115 plus drinks, tax, and tip.
