Vixen’s Wedding

Photograph by Jody Horton

Although this East Austin spot is open for limited seating, the kitchen will package the chef’s tasting menu for pickup, and frankly it’s stunning. Order this to go: Our multi-course meal for two started with a delicate crab-topped “éclair” filled with a vibrant yellow corn bavarois (a set cream) and shallot chutney. Small containers of colorful garnishes allow for creative platings; you might even invest in tweezers given the diminutive slices of radish, bright pink pickled onions, and tiny herbs that come with the dishes. We savored the large butter beans cooked with flakes of smoked cod and devoured the lamb shank, smoked and falling off the bone. An enormous round of whole wheat naan came with compound butter and chutney, but we used the bread to soak up the tamarind molasses that accompanied the lamb. Pro tip: Five-minute parking fronting Comal means a quick dart in to pick up your feast.
