“Foodie” Fridays in Austin

Dories picks



What a week! Another closing today to end November 2012 on a very good note! You may be out and about doing your holiday shopping this weekend and would like to check out something different for dinner.  Here are 3 restaurants that are new to Austin: one with roots based in the Mediterranean, one that is family friendly with entertainment and one you order and pay for your food using an iPad at the restaurant (how is that for being cool)!

1.CAFE MALTA        http://cafemaltaaustin.com
Cafe MaltaCafé Malta is a casual bistro – relaxed and informal with excellent food using fresh, local ingredients.  The inspiration for their food comes from Italy, Spain, southern France, Morocco & Greece.  These are places where food is prepared to highlight the freshest ingredients rather than disguise them. They understand that the freshest ingredients are those in your own backyard, so you’ll find the avocado, brisket and Fredricksburg peaches on the menu at some point. Their philosophy is simple: make great delicious food from scratch using ingredients that are available where you live. Since the Mediterranean is their inspiration you can enjoy something they call Tour De Forks on the 1st Tuesday of every month.  You can travel to a different port of call and experience a 4-course meal from a new port for only $25! Reservations are not needed, but, if you do make a Tour De Forks reservation you will receive a free aperitif inspired by the cuisine of the evening. Can’t beat that!

2. REUNION GRILLE           http://www.reuniongrille.com
Reunion GrilleThe Reunion Grille is a family-friendly Texas inspired restaurant serving gourmet comfort food.  In addition to the full service indoor dining spaces, they also have ample outdoor space available for socializing that includes a live music stage, outdoor bar & restrooms and a full acre of lawn and patio spaces under a live oak canopy.  The restaurant features live entertainment every weekend.  When you enter through the back gate, there is even a childens playscape area that is represented by a row of decorative bricks separating that area from the outdoor concert venue. Reunion Grille feature regional specialties with a gourmet twist.  Among the items on their menu, you’ll find southern baby back ribs and fried green tomatoes on the appetizer list, Angus rib-eye, King Ranch chicken casserole and Not Your Mama’s Shrimp and Grits on the entrée list.  And, don’t forget about dessert where you’ll find buttercup pecan pie and the cobbler du jour.

3. LUCKY ROBOT           http://www.luckyrobotrestaurant.com
Lucky RobotLucky Robot is a new Japanese inspired full service restaurant that uses Food Hub, an innovative iPad ordering and payment system that allows for ultimate control.  When you are seated, you’ll be issued an iPad and you simply order your meals and drinks directly from that.  For anyone not familiar with the system, they have staff members on hand to assist first timers. The complete menu is listed with ingredients including information about allergens.  You’ll find gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and items under 500 calories and other facts right at your fingertips. The system even includes an integrated credit card reader to securely process purchases making your dining experience quick and creative.  Some of the items on their menu include Japanese street corn, Yukari seared hanger steak, Yuzu Miso glazed salmon and happy hippie tacos.  You’ll also find the standard sushi, sashimi and maki plus a variety of Sake is available!
