The impressive new limestone construction looks and feels historic; the well-appointed interior is Hill Country chic at its sophisticated best, with leather club chairs, cigar and piano nooks, expansive patios, and a three-story outdoor fireplace. The imaginative cocktails are potent and delicious, the beer and wine lists creditable. A succinct menu features an array of small plates, ranging from exquisite duck confit on johnnycake wafers and macaroni and five (!) cheeses laced with lobster to Angus carpaccio that melts like beef butter on the tongue. Portions are too generous not to share; think Texas-size tapas. Large plates include an eight-ounce Angus filet cooked to juicy perfection and a brace of grilled quail napped with cherry demi-glace. The chocolate cake comes seasoned with flaky salt and cayenne pepper and is literally the Best. Chocolate. Cake. Ever. Knowledgeable and attentive servers and a friendly chef made our evening thoroughly enjoyable.
