Trace

Valerie Broussard's purpose as Trace's forager is to source fresh ingredients from local farms and to track down the best cheeses, cured meats, jams, and hot sauces from artisan producers. Working in tandem with Broussard, Chef Ben Hightower evokes the personality of Austin, crafting a menu with a conscience that complements the W Austin Hotel's pledge for sustainability and eco-friendly practices. Black lacquered tables cradle sharable plates of charcuterie and fresh oysters as waiters round up ranch strip steaks and all-natural FreeBird chicken breasts, accompanied by accents such as organic rainbow chard and Springdale Farms winter squash.

If the entire restaurant's décor was born from a single burst, the burst must have come from the dining room's modern chandelier, which features silver rods that erupt from a central point and teardrop lights that cast a dim glow through the interior's thin, sprawled boughs. Wide-set stone columns sit nobly against steel-hued drapes, leading eyes to the walls' mirror mosaics and out into the equally stylish W Austin Hotel.

Excellent food always something new and fresh designed by the chef.

The atmosphere was warm and inviting. I loved looking outside and even though we sat inside, it had a feel of outdoor seating.
