Bouldin Creek borders South Congress to the East and South first to the west, and is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Austin. Boy, do I love this place- one visit could show you that it’s rich with charm. 1920’s and 30’s era homes survive in this neighborhood that feels the benefits of having a culturally diverse history. It’s Austin at it’s best, with some of the best food, coffee, and entertainment to be found in the City. Plus, you’re in close proximity to a lot of prime swimming spots- Zilker Park is a short drive away, and Auditorium Shores can be found to the north of the neighborhood, on the shores of Town Lake. Wherever you are in Bouldin Creek, you’re sure to be enjoying the eclectic culture that can only be found in Austin.
It was late in the evening when I first dined at Lenoir. I was immediately charmed by the quaint but stylish décor- the atmosphere feels like your grandmother – your grandmother who possesses a great eye for style that decided to convert her house into a classy restaurant and bar… and just so happens to be the best chef around. The food is phenomenal. As I sat underneath the hanging lights in the back patio area, I enjoyed a light and flavorful meal, appreciating the ambiance that Lenoir has to offer. They also invite guests to delight in an alternating three-course prix-fixe menu, each item made with ingredients sourced locally- so the menu alternates year-round. Be sure to make a reservation, seating is quite limited. Lenoir is the perfect place for a romantic dinner or small celebration!
