At the new location of Barley Swine on Burnet Road, you can expect the same kind of impressive (albeit pricey), seasonal small plates that were served at the original location. But there is one key difference: for the first time, there’s an a la carte menu. So if you’re feeling noncommittal and would rather sample a few things without signing up for the full prix fixe, now you can. We’d recommend your dip your toe in the Barley Swine water with the red snapper & koji butter, and with a bar seat overlooking the action in the kitchen.
