“Foodie Fridays” in Austin
If you are thinking low key dining this week-end than I might have just the setting for you to try! One of the newest restaurants on Manor Rd. in Austin, is a great spot any day of the week – a “come as you are” kind of place. Stop by for a nice evening dinner or a lazy afternoon reading a book with a beer. The theme is creative and might even bring back some fun memories!! Bring your family and friends and just chill.
SCHOOL HOUSE PUB http://www.schoolhousepub.com
School House Pub is a cozy space with quality cocktails, great food and nice people. And, the theme “School House” will be found everywhere inside with chalkboards, drink names and order cards that are attached to blackboard erasers. School is in session with books suspended from the wall, and a chalkboard that says “I will not make out behind the bleachers.”
You order at the counter, grab a number and find a seat inside or on the patio. Some items you won’t find on the menu are tortilla chips, salsa or tacos. In their place, you’ll find a condensed menu of entrees and bar snacks. A sampling of what you’ll find on their menu… For Sharing- Montreal Fries: fries tossed with braised short ribs, gravy and cheese curds, Mac ‘n Cheese: served in a cast iron skillet with pancetta on top, Duck Pie: chilled confit duck, sausage, thyme, rosemary and sage in a pie crust with salad. Burgers & Sandwiches- The School House Pub Burger: in-house ground beef, aged cheddar, greens, jalapeno with onion marmalade served on a challah bun and Mr. Crunch: melted cheddar, parmesan and gruyere cheeses with shaved Serrano ham on marble rye.
On the cocktail menu you’ll find drink names like Physics, Teachers Pet, World Book, Hall Pass, Intro to Spanish, Detention, Hot teacher and Extra Credit! They also have 20 beers on tap, 20 in a can or bottle and more.
The weather should be good this weekend, so, if you’re out and about how about spending some time in school? (And, if you want to make out behind the bleachers, I promise not to tell!)
