Driskill Grill

604 Brazos St.
Austin , TX , United States
(512) 391-7162

The Driskill Grill at the Driskill, Austin’s oldest and most atmospheric hotel, remains an iconic restaurant, with its stately dining room, flurry of servers and sense of history—it’s where Lyndon B. Johnson had his first date with Lady Bird Johnson in 1934, and proposed later that day. Chef Jonathan Gelman lends a sense of fun to his daily-changing menus that are rooted in French tradition but nod to Texas and the broader South: The branzino, for instance, is cooked in a cast-iron skillet and arrives at the table accompanied by smoked cheddar and duck confit grits.
