Guild Austin is a new seafood spot that opened earlier this year and you have to go! It’s a progressive American seafood restaurant located on North Lamar (for reference, right below the Kendra Scott headquarters) with a raw bar, gorgeous dining room with high ceilings, large outdoor patio (perfect for big groups) and a garden where Guild pulls ingredients fresh to order.
I have a huge obsession with interior spaces and Guild has to have one of the prettiest aesthetics in town! From left to right, front to back, top to bottom, you can really see all of the attention to detail that was put into the newest member of the Chameleon family. Chameleon is the hospitality group that brought you Wu Chow and Swfit’s Attic — so you know the food is bound to be phenomenal, with great, professional service alike.
I was invited in last week to try their new extended happy hour and was overly impressed with each dish. On the menu includes a vegan summer “ceviche”, fried lavender-brined chicken, clam beignets, whitewater mussels served with brioche soldiers, and mixed dozen oysters.
I also got a sneak peek of a new brunch item — the Granola! The Granola contains madras curry, peanut butter custard and vanilla yogurt.
The extended happy hour menu also features six cocktails that pair perfectly with each dish. These cocktails include: the Dark N Shandy, the Real Playa’s Sunrise, the Fiery Mule, the Kentucky Mule, the Paloma and the Gin-ger Tini. My favorite was the Real Playa’s Sunrise which contained Real Playa vodka, fresh jalapeño slices, lime and ginger beer.
See you there!
