The Hit ListAustin

Where to Eat in October: Este, Sazan, El Naranjo, and More


It’s a big month for Austin! ACL is coming to town, and so is Este, the brand-new seafood restaurant from the team behind Suerte. With any luck, temperatures will start approaching comfortable levels soon, making outdoor dining even more appealing. Through it all, the Resy Hit List is here to help you answer the perennial question: Where should we eat?

Want to escape the downtown crowds? Head to Fonda San Miguel for margaritas and Mexican food. Looking for drink recommendations that have nothing to do with pumpkin spice? Try the yuzu-inflected “Strip ‘N Go Naked” at Tiki Tatsu-Ya. Excited to celebrate the end of hundred-degree days? Spend your afternoon on the patio at Better Half Coffee & Cocktails — and maybe even bring a light jacket if you’re feeling optimistic. All that and more awaits on this month’s Hit List.
