When it comes to eating and drinking in Austin, there are many fine neighborhoods to choose from. But what if you didn’t HAVE different neighborhoods to choose from? What if you were confined to only one ‘hood for all your eating and drinking, until the end of time. Even though it probably won’t happen, it’s interesting to think about. Except you don’t have to think about it anymore, because we figured out precisely how Austin’s finest dining and drinking ‘hoods stack up. Disagree? Sound off in the comments.
4. East Cesar Chavez
Let’s face it, the epicenter of cool in Austin is East, and it’s not letting up any time soon. Foodie darlings La Barbecue reside here; Bufalina and taco truck Veracruz All Natural are keeping it real (real good); and Cenote has long been a mainstay for the wayfarers-and-coffee crowd. Perfectly executed cocktails at Weather Up and new dive bar Drinks round out the beverage category. And the new spots keep on coming in the form of locavore steakhouse Jacoby’s Mercantile, and mid-century modern diner Sawyer and Co.
