Goodall's Kitchen features classic American bistro fare and handcrafted cocktails that can be enjoyed in the restaurant's relaxed bistro-style atmosphere or on the idyllic veranda overlooking the Hotel Ella front lawn. The renovated dining room blends the timelessness of the historic Goodall Wooten House with a modern Austin sensibility. The upscale bistro food includes items such as deviled eggs with candied bacon, grilled oysters with bread crumbs and chimichurri, and a tavern steak featuring their signature fries made with aleppo butter and roasted bone marrow. This is one place not to skip dessert; the chocolate soufflé tart with sea salt, almonds and olive oil ice cream is a sure bet. A limited menu and weekday happy hour is also available in the vintage Parlor Bar.
