Even though Austin has a serious food reputation, its
residents can’t count that many Mexican joints that stand up
as the best in the state, or the country. Fonda San Miguel,
while now a bit kitschy (having been founded in 1975), does
fit the bill, and it anchors the city as its premier Mexican
restaurant institution. Opt for the mole poblano or cochinita
pibil, and remember, there’s no charge for handmade corn and flour tortillas with entrées. Bring your
friends—tables seat up to 20.

Environmental stewardship and sustainability drive all aspects of Truluck's operations. For this reason, we
purchased our own crab fisheries to ensure that all crab is caught and prepared safely and humanely. We
respect the seasonal cycles of marine life. We do not serve seafood out of season. This protects our
aquaculture and ensures better-tasting, higher-quality food.

Peché is distinctly Austin’s 1st absinthe bar where pre
prohibition style cocktails are prepared perfectly by our expert
bartenders. Our chefs have created one of the best menus in
Austin. As an ordained clergyman from One of Those Churches in the Back of a Magazine, Rob Pate can
pour you a drink or pronounce you man and wife. Take your pick.
Motivated by an adjective in my review of his restaurant in February 2009, the owner of Péché became a
minister. That adjective was ‘evangelical,’ and I used it to describe his powers of persuasion behind the
bar.

Cirkiel opened parkside—the city’s first gastro pub—to much fanfare. The accolades continue on for this
sophisticated spot, which is housed in a converted two-story space on East Sixth Street, as they do for
Cirkiel’s subsequent ventures: the backspace, a widely popular Neapolitan-style pizzeria, and olive &

food extends beyond the scope of his restaurants and has become a driving force behind his notable
community engagement.

homes, many of the bungalow style, in downtown Austin, Texas.

35 in the southeast corner of downtown. Though 21 buildings

stretch of Rainey between River and Driskill includes 31 buildings built before 1934, giving the neighborhood a

historic character relative to other areas of the city. The district includes 120 acres (0.49 km ) from 70 to 97 Rainey

Likely Texas’ best known street, the seven blocks of 6th

Austin’s entertainment center. With a little help from its
many like-minded sister streets, 6th Street is the heart of
Austin’s live entertainment scene and the capital of third
coast music.
Sixth Street (formerly known as Pecan Street) is lined
with many historical houses and commercial buildings
dating from the late 1800′s and early 1900′s. The storied
old buildings now house numerous bars, a host of live
entertainment venues, tattoo parlors, art galleries, casual cafes, upscale restaurants, and the elegant
Driskill Hotel. Live music of every genre abounds. From jazz, blues, and country to rock, hip-hop, beat,

The Moody Theater is the best place to see a show

W ebsite:
http://www.tspb.state.tx.us/spb/capitol/texcap.htm
The Texas Capitol is an extraordinary example of late 19th century
public architecture and is widely recognized as one of the nation's most distinguished state capitols. It
was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and designated a National Historic
Landmark in 1986 for its "significant contribution to American history." Completed in 1888 as the winning
design from a national competition, the Capitol's style is Renaissance Revival, based on the architecture
of 15th-century Italy and characterized by classical orders, round arches and symmetrical composition.
The structural exterior walls are "sunset red" granite, quarried just 50 miles from the site. Additional
structural support is provided by interior masonry walls and cast iron columns and wrought iron beams.
The foundation is limestone. Texas paid for the construction not in dollars, but in land: some three million
acres in the Texas Panhandle that would later become the famous XIT Ranch. The 1888 Texas Capitol is
the largest in gross square footage of all state capitols and is second in total size only to the National
Capitol in Washington, D.C. Texas Capitol surpasses the National Capitol in height, rising almost 15 feet
above its Washington counterpart.
