Second Bar and Kitchen
The 56-story Austonian condo building has transformed both the city’s skyline (it’s Austin’s highest building) and its dining scene. Star chef David Bull runs all three of its eating and drinking establishments on the ground floor, including the elegant restaurant Congress and the chic and airy Second Bar + Kitchen. The latter is a great spot for playful comfort food, like wood-fired pizza topped with pulled pork and green chiles, and creative cocktails such as the Gin + Jam, offered with house-made marmalade and jam that diners stir in themselves.
Tune in on Wednesdays at 10PM ET for Top Chef: Boston, the 12th season of Bravo's Emmy-Award winning, hit reality series.
