Things We CLINK To

Fabi and Rosi = FABULOUS

If you haven’t been to Fabi + Rosi yet, I feel sorry for your mouth. This is one of the best restaurants in Austin, hands down! It is fine dining that is not only affordable, but inviting and comfortable as well.

Let’s start with the ambiance. Fabi + Rosi took up residence a couple of years ago in the building previously vacated by Zoot. It is an adorable “home” with great black and white décor throughout. White leather tufted banquettes line the walls and vintage framed mirrors in myriad shapes, styles and sizes hang above. There are black and white striped drapes that can be closed and used as a divider to make certain tables private dining areas

Even the bathrooms are adorable! No detail has gone untouched. The glassware, flatware and china are all classic yet perfectly in place. There is a great outdoor courtyard, that has modern furnishings and is perfect to sit in while waiting for a table. Or to dine al fresco on a gorgeous Austin day!

The menu! Holy greatness. The menu changes seasonally and is updated based on customer feedback – you gotta love that. All ingredients are fresh and many come straight from the garden. The nightly specials are inventive and always a hit! My current favorite is the escargot! A must try, even if you have never had escargot. We took a friend there that refused to try the beautiful snails but she sopped up the garlic butter with their great bread and was VERY pleased! The arugula salad with overnight tomatoes is beautiful, colorful and a great starter. If you are a beet fan, you can’t go wrong with the golden beets accompanied with pistachio goat cheese- YUM!!!

For main courses, the ich liebe tiere, which translates into “I love animals,” is amazing!!!! A mushroom strudel, whipped cauliflower and a carrot cardamom puree is the prefect dish. If I were a vegetarian, I would consume this DAILY! The lamb ragout with the savory ravioli is perfect on a cold night and the pan seared scallop with devils on horseback are some of the best scallops in Austin.

Dessert, two words: crack pie. Fabi + Rosi’s crack pie far outshines the crack pie of Momofuku fame. It is butter and sugar greatness in a crust!!! The other offerings are fabulous, but the crack pie is…addictive 😉

Fabi + Rosi is open for dinner every night of the week. Reservations are available before 6:30 and then seating is available on a first come/first serve basis. Welcome to your new favorite place!
