Paul Qui is one of the Celebrity Chefs who has helped make Austin part of the liveliest food scenes in America. He makes his daily Modernist menu with the freshest ingredients.  Limited reservations are available; therefore, a wait for a table can be expected but the outdoor and indoor bars for cocktails are a great part of the whole experience.  Sit back, relax and enjoy!

Tip: Open Mon-Thur 5-10pm, Fri-Sat 5-11pm and closed Sun.  Reservations online, or call 512-436-9626 for parties over 5.

Playing eclectic and chic live music, East Side Showroom is an excellent place to grab drinks and enjoy the vibe after your meal at Qui. Local bands such as, Blue Squeeze Box fill the restaurant and bar with amazing music until 2 am.  It’s a great example of why East Austin is the happenin’ part of town.   

Tip: No Cover Charge. This is also an excellent restaurant, also on the Ultimate Top 20, cooking farm to table cuisine.  Patio seating is also available.
