Barlata’s ‘Spanish brunch’ includes a whole slew of tortillas, tapas and paellas, including veggie-friendly versions. Let all that olive oil soak up last night’s hangover.
Brunch is the sacred meal of Austin, a sanctioned time of lazy conversation, giant hunks of french toast, and Bloody Mary’s as far as the eye can see. Across the city, hipsters with mussed mustaches, power yuppies in hasty ponytails, and families carting two kids and three dogs come together to toast the beginning of the end of the weekend.
Today, we share our latest update of the Eater Austin brunch heatmap, wherein we map out the hottest spots for weekend day drinking-and-dining, from The Bonneville’s mimosa bottle service to a tapas-fest Spanish brunch at Barlata. As always, if there’s a favorite new restaurant—or an established one trying new things—that we’ve missed, let us know on the tipline or in the comments.
