Austin Top 25 Restaurants: June 2016

Foodable’s Austin Top 25 features seven brand new restaurants making their debut on the list­! And it’s always exciting and rare to see these new names land in the top three!

One of the fresh names on the list including BullFight– Chef Shawn Cirkiel’s hip and rustic restaurant known for its Spanish seafood and tapas and small plates lands at the coveted no. 1 spot. But, following closely behind is an Austin top 25 veteran and last ranking’s victor, Josephine House– the New American restaurant with fine-dining featuring many locally sourced ingredients. Another farm-to-table concept, Emmer & Rye make its debut on the list as no.3, rounding out the top three restaurants.

As for some of the other movements on the list– Juniper, Arro and Epicerie return to the list after dropping off on the last ranking. While the last ranking’s third restaurant, Dai Due drops down to no. 17.

Austin’s culinary scene is evidently heating up with these new-to-the-list culinary delights creating some major social buzz.
