Though Austin is a town known for its casual dining scene, the abundance of culinary talent and Texas ingredients lends well to tasting menus.
Multi-course tasting menus offer chefs a chance to guide diners through a culinary story or showcase the freshest ingredients of the season. Tasting menus often bring to mind restaurants like Clarksville’s Wink, an Austin staple for over 20 years, or chef Bryce Gilmore’s Barley Swine, but they can also encompass more playful takes, like Nixta’s taco menu.
