In Texas, the best, most creative restaurants often meld Southwestern flavors with tried-and-true European dishes to conjure up a new cuisine entirely. So it is at this hotel restaurant, which consistently tops the list of Austin's best. Try the restaurant's specialty, to see how traditional blends with Texas flavors: Focaccia Crusted Pork Tenderloin served with Texas Ruby Red grapefruit and a citrus beurre blanc. But it is not just the centerpiece of a meal here that is outstanding. From the basket heaped with four types of bread and three flavors of butter to the sumptuous creme brulee, the food is consistently well conceived and perfectly executed. The atmosphere is soothing and sophisticated, and the people watching is unparalleled; everyone from visiting celebrities to politicians to high-tech execs dines here.
