Where should you take you date for best date night in Austin?

Wine and dine you date at Barley Swine which “features multiple courses inspired” by local farmers and ranchers. You and your date can taste the best of their seasonal flare by opting for the chef tasting. Ten courses have been hand selected for you and your date for $90. One such featured item on the chef’s tasting is the glazed duck ham, with grilled broccoli and a fried duck egg. Begin your date night with a unique crafted cocktail like the Pink Cadillac: Mezcal, Cocchi Americano, Suze, Beet.

If your date is a seafood lover, Musashino Sushi Dokoro – Tokyo Style Sushi establishment – will satisfy their tastes. In addition to sushi and nigiri, traditional rolls will satirist the palates of even the most ardent sushi purist. You will not find American-ized specialty rolls here! Instead, feast on Ika Ume Jiso, Cuttlefish, pickled plum, ooba leaf, and cucumber. Be sure to ask your sushi chef for a saki pairing recommendation. For dessert, treat your sweet with macha ice-cream or red bean ice cream! If you and your date are planning to whisk off to New York or Japan, you can still dine at Musashino!
