Garrido's Restaurant and Bar is a great place to sample Mexican cuisine in downtown Austin. They combine classical French training with traditional recipes, with the use of locavore ingredients - their chicken is sourced from a local farm that play Mozart music. Start of with Pork Carnitas Tacos, and savor mains like Paleo-styled salmon wrapped in a banana leaf, and Redfish Veracruzana with Tomatillo rice and Olive salsa. Their menu also features gluten-free and organic selections. Complement your meal with tequila-based cocktails like Paloma and end with desserts like Pastel de Calabaza. Their patio is one of the best seats in the house, lined by palms and in view of the Shoal Creek. Head here for Happy Hours and their famous Tacos-a-Go-Go.
