As the Austin dining scene grows, local diners have become ever more worldly when it comes to their expanding palates, but so have they come to appreciate the talents of local interior designers and architects who've created spaces that are as lovely as the food is delicious.

We've already mapped out Austin's most iconic dishes and most iconic drinks, so today we're having a look inside some of Austin's most iconic dining rooms, from the veritable Mexican art museum inside decades-old Fonda San Miguel to airy new spaces like La Condesa and dining rooms that aren't walled at all, but clusters of picnic tables centered around Austin's finest food trucks.
