Visitors to Austin often work up an appetite touring the Texas Capitol building. They’re in luck. Three blocks south is a sleek new Hyatt Centric hotel with an attractive, modern indoor-outdoor restaurant named Luminaire (at the helm are San Antonio chef Steve McHugh, of Cured fame, and on-site executive chef Greg Driver). At lunch diners can choose among charcuterie, sandwiches, and entrées such as crisply cooked shrimp with a medley of stewed tomatoes and chipotle adobo with tasso ham; whipped hominy (think fluffy mashed grits) comes alongside. In the evening, they might start with tomato tartare (smoked and actually beefy tasting) and their choice of assorted small chops ($8 each). Our beef chop was big but terribly fatty, the lamb chop tender and satisfying. The best thing we sampled was harissa-seasoned baby carrots.
