Birdie's

$$$$

Birdie’s is a walk-in only neighborhood wine bar and restaurant in East Austin—the chef and owners are New York City restaurant vets. The menu is on the short side, seasonally-minded, and you’ll find dishes like beef tartare with pecans, duck confit rillete, and rotating handmade pastas. The dining room is small and charming, and the dog-friendly patio out back is big and spacious. The wine list is a mix of new and classic producers, and for dessert there’s soft serve and a Sicilian-inspired chocolate chip cookie.
