Olive and June, 3411 Glenview Avenue
Italian food always warms the heart and the modern versions of your favorite Italian dishes served at Olive and June will help the rest of you stay warm as well! Specializing in farm fresh ingredients, every bite will be better than your last, and if you want a real treat, be sure to order their pork meatballs made with tomato and fig mostarda! Also featuring a strong wine and cocktail menu, their handmade cocktails will never let you down and their wines range from the lightest and most bubbly to the darkest of reds!
Salty Sow, 1917 Manor Road
Known for their swine, wine, and beer, the Salty Sow offers laidback fun and a meat-centric menu designed to keep you warm on the coldest winter days! A unique appetizer menu offers a tasty beginning and includes truffled deviled eggs and a chicken liver mousse in a jar and their main menu mixes Tex-Mex and barbecue specialties guaranteed to linger in your dreams for years to come. And if you leave without sampling the chocolate truffle cake that is the focal point of their dessert menu, we can promise you will regret it forevermore!
Austin Dining at Moonshine Grill, 303 Red River Street
Of course, if you want to stay warm even during a winter storm such as the one we faced last January in Austin, the quickest and most fun wait to do so is with a visit to the Moonshine Grill! Serving sandwiches that are piled high with the best ingredients, main dishes that are hot and delicious and include chicken and waffles and a horseradish crusted salmon, it is the drink menu that will convince you to take off your extra layers and tuck into a 2nd Lady Bird made with mezcal, Aperol, lemon, and lavender.
