Enjoy Happy Hour in Lenoir's Wine Garden

Lenoir Restaurant, located off of busy South First Street, is one of the fancier dining options here in Austin, but you don’t have to break the bank to enjoy their wine garden. While the interior of the restaurant is stunningly beautiful with long, wooden communal tables and eye-catching chandeliers, the backyard patio takes on a more simple aesthetic, adorned with white picnic tables and string lights hanging from large shady trees.

Lenoir Wine Garden Bar 

The Lenoir Wine Garden is open every day except Monday. In addition to sipping on beer and wine, patrons may also dine on small plates from the outdoor kitchen. Perhaps the best time to go is Tuesday-Saturday from 5-7pm when you can take advantage of their featured happy hour deals.

Garden Seating

The limited happy hour menu features six small shared plates and two different boards to choose from, as well as an array of wine, beer and ciders (wine and cider by the bottle are half off). On our recent visit, we sipped on $5 glasses of rosé and snacked on the deviled eggs, hush puppies and goat tacos while enjoying the romantic backyard vibes.

Deviled Eggs

Though deviled eggs seem to be a standard item on menus these days, Lenoir's had a welcomed Asian twist to them. The plate came with four eggs that were uniquely delicious with the addition of bowfin caviar, nori and kochikaru.

Hush Puppies

I’ll admit that I don’t think you can go wrong with anything that is batter based and deep fried, so I might not be the best person to judge this dish. These hush puppies were super savory, and the addition of the peach sambal gave them a delightful sweet twist at the end.

Goat Tacos

Though they may only appeal to the more adventurous eaters out there, I’d place the goat tacos on the “must-try” list. The order came with three tacos on corn tortillas with a roasted tomato salsa and plenty of cilantro. We were pleasantly surprised to taste so much flavor in such a small taco!

Head on over to the Lenoir Wine Garden soon to see what the buzz is all about. Be sure to call ahead or check their Facebook page to ensure it’s not closed for a private event.
