At this Sixth Street newbie, chef Shawn Cirkiel serves elevated bar food like crab fritters, ricotta ravioli, classic steak tartare, and loup de mer with fennel vinaigrette.
For upscale American food in Austin, there is no better place than Parkside. Hit up the raw bar for oysters and five different kinds of scrumptious ceviche.
For starters, best oysters in Austin. But this is no one trick pony...the steak frites brings it, as does every seafood item I've ever tried.
Stop by this 6th street institution on Wednesdays for 1/2 price Oysters and Champagne. Great atmosphere for friends or an intimate dinner.
1/2 price oysters & champagne on the patio...what more could you ask for on a Wed?
Wednesday nights are half-price champagne and oysters. They have the best oyster selection I've run across in Austin.
parkside will be open for lunch during SXSW!
Must.have.Okra. <-- you haven't lived until you do it here.
Anything raw at this place is really good.
Best raw bar in town! Chef Cirkiel is very knowledgeable about the GF lifestyle.
Holy crap this restaurant is good. Sweetbreads & marrow were Amazing. Okra was killer. Ceviche, butternut squash, lamb all great.
Try the bone marrow the right way: push the marrow out of the bone using the spoon, spread it on the bread, and add a pinch of salt.
Don't miss the fried okra. It's cut on bias for more fried goodness. Also, loved the spring pea ravioli. Ask your server what's in season & local. (& the Driskell bartender rec'd the oysters here.)
THE hip spot for SXSW dining, whether fish, lamb or fowl. Best burger & raw bar in town, smack dab in the middle of 6th Street!!
Make sure you order ceviche, beef oyster, tounge, and ask for more bread!!!!! How come I never visited this place? Waiting for my entree, hope they're as good as the appetizers! :)
Don't sit at the bar unless you're capable of being completely stoic while watching hundreds of raw oysters go forth to other bellies. *droooool*
this place is phenomenal...located right on dirty 6th. the food and hospitality without a doubt will make you come back for more.
The sea bass is amazing. So fresh with a light citrus vinaigrette and rich avocado. Perfect for a hot summer evening. The mac & cheese is most excellent as well.
Try the grilled chicken sandwich. They'll even toss a fried egg onto it upon request.
Wednesday is 1/2 price oyster and champagne night!! My favorites I've tried so far are the Cameron Shoal, Caraquette, Mill Point, and Blue Point. For dessert, try their basil ice cream!!
Best butt dimples on dirty Sixth.
What a great spot. The lamb pastrami is amazing. Steak is tasty, properly cooked and tender. Definitely coming back here.
