"Foodie" Fridays in Austin - 5-4-12
It’s Friday again and time to think about a fun place to eat out this weekend in Austin. Depending on what you are in the mood for there is something for everyone!
I’ve got some good choices this week for some authentic Italian cuisine:
Taverna is a warm and inviting neighborhood restaurant that offers a truly Italian experience without having to leave Texas. The Italian chefs strive to create the perfect menu using seasonal ingredients for their surprising entrees; every day they present a variety of Northern Italian delights that range from simple comfort food to delicate pastas and fabulous risotto. A taverna in Italy is a special place where customers become friends and family. Here, the essence of hospitality and farm-to-table cooking reflects that in their rustic and welcoming interior. We also like to eat outside and people watch!
Tree House Italian Grill http://www.treehousegrill.com/
Tree House Italian Grill hosts one of Austin’s oldest and largest live oaks. The live oak is estimated to be over 700 years old! At Tree House you’ll find a beautiful garden complete with shrubs and flowers, brick walkways, trellis and gazebo. Combined with comfortable Italian cuisine, the Tree House Italian Grill is where good memories are made, and excellent food and superb wines are served. When Geno and I were dating this was one of our favorities!
La Traviata http://www.latraviata.net/contact.html
La Traviata is a gem of a place on Congress Ave. in downtown Austin. The pasta is always fresh and the meatballs are delicious with a broad selection of wines to choose from. It’s a nice smaller restaurant with great service ~ the perfect spot for a Friday night date or a special occasion.
