As the first gastropub in Austin, this sophisticated spot is devoted to sustainable cooking in a playful, ever-evolving manner. Vegetarians will be happy as well; Executive Chef Nathan Lemley loves his veggies and delights in creating scrumptious meatless dishes. Diners can also enjoy one of Austin's best happy hours, offering half-price on all cocktails, beer, and bar food until 6:30, Monday-Friday. Be warned, it gets crowded quickly so the best bet is to arrive early. Don't miss the oysters on the half shell, some of the freshest in town. You might also want to check out Cirkiel's newest restaurant, Bullfight, serving modern Spanish classics.
