1. The Diner Bar
A recent addition to Austin’s downtown, The Diner Bar is the sister restaurant of The Grey in Savannah. You’ll plan to stop by for a quick Vieux Carré and some oysters, but you’ll end up staying for a full dinner when you smell the roasted chicken wafting from the next table over. After your meal, you might even book a brunch Resy for the next day, because you’ve heard great things about the chicken and waffles, and you’re intrigued by the smoked sturgeon on rye.
