Bess Bistro on Pecan

500 W. 6th St.
Austin, TX, 78701, United States
TEL: (512) 477-2377

Bess translates an idealized French bistro into western terms (pewter bar; encaustic tile; distressed mirrors). Yes, it serves killer steak frites, but there are plenty of smart Lone Star touches: grilled quail, for example, is glazed in guajillo honey (an ingredient recently inducted into Slow Food USA’s Ark of Taste). End your meal with a “Texas snowball”—a brownie topped with local Blue Bell ice cream in a shell of flambéed meringue.
