If you are looking for a French Bistro to remind you of your last visit to France, you might want to plan a visit to the Artisan Bistro in NW Austin. It is located in the Lakeway Commons center at RR620 and Lakeway Blvd. near Lake Travis.
The chef always plans a wonderful menu, and the restaurant offers a wide selection of French wines and pastries (all homemade daily). Although there may be a small quartet or solo artist entertaining on weekends, it is quiet enough for lively conversation whether you are seated at a table or at the wine bar. And the kitchen is open and accessible so you can watch the chef in action preparing your dinner. The duck confit, French beans, or pommes frites are among many delicious selections which may change with the season. Enjoy happy hour or the many special holiday celebrations with family or friends.
