Dining Guide

Texas French Bread

A spare farmhouse feel and the aroma of fresh-baked breads set the scene for this UT-area favorite, which draws a grown-up clientele who have likely been dining here for forty years. Try this: The Chez Panisse–style menu is the essence of fresh and local, from a lemony chilled cucumber soup to lightly fried oysters sided by a wedge of lemon and sprightly arugula. Delicious cacio e pepe arrived as a creamy mound of hand-made tagliatelle, and beautiful roasted chicken came with a creamy farro and emerald-green kale. Pro tip: Grab a baguette from the bakery on your way out.
