Olivia was the first Austin restaurant from the group that also spawned Lucy’s Fried Chicken. It’s a white tablecloth type of establishment, but it’s not stuffy, nor is it some sort of boring “New American” spot with little more than a pork chop and a steak on the menu. You’ll often find things like beef heart carpaccio and baked oysters to eat, and their brunch is also very solid. It’s a perfect place to bring the parents, even if they don’t feel like getting a little adventurous.
A great way to start your meal at Olivia, whether you're here for brunch or dinner.
These are another standout on the smaller end of Olivia's menu.
Our favorite time to hit Olivia is for brunch. It's an upscale yet still comfortable vibe, and the food is a major step up from the usual bougie benedicts/pancakes situation.
