Vinaigrette Austin - Restaurant Review


What a lovely setting for a restaurant - a building full of light, and a gorgeous patio with a majestic oak tree as the centerpiece! Amazing! The place was clean and bright, and the service was very friendly.


We started with a bottle of bubbly and the kale nachos, which our server said is their most popular starter. The flavor were great, but the cost is pretty high for five tortilla chips loaded with kale (I think it was about $8 for this dish?).

     
After a couple bottles of the bubbly, we switched to this Domaine de Fontsainte Gris de Gris Rosé 2015 from Corbières, which was very nice (~$40).


I ordered the All Kale Caesar! (~$12) and added scallops (~$7). The salad was great (a kale-based Caesar) but the portions are small for the price. I was still a bit hungry afterwards.

     
To cap of the night, we ordered this bubbly Charles Bove Méthode Traditionnelle Touraine Rosé (~$40) and sat on the patio under the impressive tree. It was lovely. What a perfect night with friends!
