Cover 3 Austin

A Bite Out

A Warm Welcome to Anderson Lane

Though there seems to be a bit of an identity crisis, it’s a nice addition to the Anderson Lane Restaurant Row. The half-baked, self-promoted as an upscale sports bar concept needs some tweaking. This is more of an inviting, contemporary new American food restaurant that happens to have 15 unobtrusive and muted 52” flat-panel TVs on the wall. Although technically a sports bar, the images of pitcher slamming and wing mastication won’t be observed here. Ignoring the humdrum beer selection, think “Mr. Howell’s Sports Bar” if he never shipwrecked. The TVs are on mute and most are at distantly odd angles from wherever you happen to be sitting.

Endless button-up shirts and polos abound for business lunches, most-likely pulling from Houston’s wait down the street. The Anderson/Burnet neighborhood has undergone such transformation that Cover 3 can scratch an itch that previously needed the Domain or downtown.

La Condesa Austin

A Bite Out

Welcome to the Modern Museum of Mexican Street Food

Following the street food trend of taking traditional dishes and executing them in a modern fashion, La Condesa has created a mania in Austin’s warehouse district. This little sister of the Dallas Victory Park original tries to distance itself from the older, big-haired, sibling; the menu and vibe are very different.

From the cut cinder blocks on the bar wall to the framed steel windows and shrub landscape, this is cool clever modern. Playa de Carmen, anyone?
