This means incredible Texas offerings from South Lamar restaurant Odd Duck, nationally acclaimed tacos from East Austin restaurant Nixta Taqueria, the ideal Austin patio at West Austin restaurant Better Half, acclaimed smoked meats from East Austin restaurant La Barbecue, high-quality cocktail bar Small Victory, East Austin natural wine bar LoLo, and more.
