A relative newcomer to Dripping Springs, this upscale bistro offers takeaway items from an abbreviated version of the main menu, with a few extras to boot. Order this to go: Wedges of roasted beets accompanied by an earthy walnut dukkah and dollops of goat cheese cream make for a delicious starter, as does the traditional salade verte with shaved radishes and a perky white wine vinaigrette. The Dirty Burger, which is prepared with a green peppercorn–coated patty, Emmenthaler cheese, a thick fried onion, and a dousing of au poivre sauce, is indeed “dirty”; we suggest a fork and knife for this beauty. Pro tip: Brunch is served on the weekends, but only dinner is offered to go. Place your order early, as we’ve discovered that some items sell out quickly.
