2. CHEZ NOUS http://cheznousaustin.com/
One word that’s been used to describe Chez Nous is Perfection! The interior of this restaurant is small and quaint, but still very intimate. For fine European cuisine, Chez Nous is a favorite restaurant among Austinites, great for that perfect date night dinner. They have a 4 star wine selection but the reason you go to Chez Nous is for the food! A 30 minute meal can end up taking 2 hours because you spend so much time talking about how good everything tastes. You can begin your meal with escargots and gazpacho before enjoying delicious scallops or veal scallopini. Then end your evening with an espresso and mousse au chocolat or profiteroles for dessert. It’s a French tradition for dinner to be enjoyed and lingered over, so take your time and enjoy! Bon Appetit!
