Caviar at Room 725.
| Fairmont

There’s something so indulgent and fancy about caviar, which is such a simple salty snack that’s a luxury due to the high costs of the sturgeon fish roe. And in Austin, there’s plenty of highbrow and lowbrow places for caviar. There are fine-dining restaurants with caviar services like Jeffrey’s and Room 725; comparatively casual spots like Underdog places pairing very much not-house-made chips with caviar like Texas Sushiko; and yes, even martinis with dumps of caviar like at Daydreamer and Garbo’s.
