Wink

1014 N. Lamar Blvd.
Austin, TX, 78703, United States
TEL: (512) 482-8868

Despite its unassuming strip mall location, this New American restaurant is often lauded as one of the best in the city. The dining room is intimate and understated, with about 15 white-clothed tables and windows screened with Japanese washi (rice paper). Le Cirque alum Mark Paul and co-chef Stewart Scruggs alter the menu daily to showcase the freshest available ingredients, with possible dishes including seared foie gras on almond torte with pomegranate reduction, and red snapper with broccoli and grapefruit brown butter. The adjacent bar serves an ever-evolving selection of international wines, with approximately 50 available by the glass.

Insider Tip:

Be sure to inform the staff in advance if you’re celebrating a special occasion—you’ll be greeted with a personalized menu, and the chefs will usually sign it upon request.
