A week or so ago, I visited Swift’s Attic in Austin, a buzzing restaurant that recently opened on Congress St. above The Elephant Room. This time, I had two missions under my belt for Serious Eats: to taste every cocktail on the bar menu, and to sample their most popular dishes.
By the end of the photoshoot, the global fare stretched across the entire long table. They ranged from pork belly “Banh Minis”, a housemade kimchi tasting, to my favourite, a diver scallop tiradito. Fortunately, my trusty assistant was there to help me polish off the diverse dishes.
The playful dessert below tugged at my heartstrings. Here, PB&J was all grown up – deconstructed and accompanied by velvety foie gras mousse cylinders.
