On the eighth floor of the fancy new hotel The Loren on Riverside Drive in South Austin is the rooftop restaurant Nido with incredible views of Town Lake. The chef has worked at places like Noma, Per Se, and the Ace Hotel in New Orleans, and the menu skews New American/European, with dishes like octopus carpaccio, ricotta gnudi, beef short rib with bordelaise, and a half chicken “a la brique.”
