Austin Top 25 Restaurants: August 2017

Hello Austin foodies and restaurateurs! Foodable's Austin Top 25 restaurants list is back to highlight some of the best restaurant's in this flavorful city.

The Top 25 veteran Launderette, known for its gourmet New American fare served in a space that was formerly a gas station and laundromat, lands at No. 1 after placing at No. 5 on our last ranking.

Last ranking's No. 1 restaurant Emmer & Rye also returns this month, but at No. 2. This farm-to-table restaurant on Rainey Street appeals to foodies looking to try multiple items by serving small plates in Dim Sum Style. And rounding out the top three is another Top 25 veteran, the farm-to-table concept, Dai Due.

This ranking features four restaurants making their debut on the Foodable Top 25.

We welcome the James Beard Awarded restaurant known for its farm-fresh Southern cuisine, Olamaie at No. 16. The fine dining steakhouse, Jeffrey's lands at No. 18 and épicerie Cafe & Grocery, which offers French-American artisanal cafe fare, makes its debut at No. 21.

The last new restaurant landing at No. 25 is the beloved barbecue joint, Franklin Barbecue, which has ben closed for the last few weeks due to a fire. Since then, the restaurant has been hosting BBQ events to give local foodies their fix while they wait for the restaurant to re-open,  

Some of the former Top 25 gems have made their way back on the list after a brief hiatus. Contigo, a restaurant that serves southern style food with seasonal cocktail menu, returns at No. 11 and the butcher shop that serves farm-to-table fare, Salt & Time returns at No. 22.
