Love it or hate it, the construction of the Domain gave North Austin a complete cultural center. Trendy and high-end shops flocked to the development, and quality dining options soon followed.

To unwind after a long day of shopping, lounge with a well-crafted cocktail in Second Bar + Kitchen’s vaulting hotel space or tapas at Mia. The pasta and pizza at North Italia make for good anytime meals. Steakhouse Perry works well for lunch and dinner. Indulge in baked goods at Bakery Lorraine and bubble tea from Tawiwanese shop Gong Cha.

As with all businesses, be sure to call ahead to make sure each one is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Wear a mask and tip well.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
