It’s hard to impress Austinites with good Tex Mex but ATX Cocina elevates it to a whole new level with their focus on corn. This is heaven for those who are gluten free but the homemade corn tortillas are the best in Austin, and their chicken with white mole sauce melts in your mouth. Order the watermelon drink before they sell out, and enjoy a fun experience in the hub of downtown.
Right around the corner from ATX Cocina is Patisserie, which is next door to Le Politique. It’s a a typical relaxing French setting, with rich coffee and French pastries to indulge after your meal. If you’re on a date, you’ll win bonus points on this one.
