The modern Texan and Southern restaurant Indianola is chic and upscale, but not too fancy, sort of like being inside an issue of Southern Living magazine. The seasonal menu changes pretty often, but expect riffs on Southern classics like a blue corn cornbread with brown butter cream cheese and local fruit, a wood-grilled hanger steak with a sweet corn pudding, and Texas quail stuffed with Vietnamese country pork sausage. Even though service can be inconsistent at times, Indianola is perfect for a date night, especially the plush brown booths in the airy dining room. Afterwards, head to their next door cocktail bar, Miss Carousel for a nightcap.
