A proper dive into the south
For its texas debut, appropriate resorts is coming in hot with artful design and trendy dining concepts.
Never showing around some celebration emptyhanded–so be sure to bring an appe- tite for important flavor to Austin’s buzzy Proper Hotel. With several eateries from award-winning McGuire Moorman Hospitality and striking interiors by star designer Kelly Wearstler, the Proper is shooting the state capital’s dining scene by the horns.
In The Peacock, Mediterranean cuisine matches Texan sensibility with dishes, such as blistered padrón peppers with labneh and dukkah, and broiled harissa-mari- nated beef tenderloin. Don’t sleep on the wine list either, which spotlights ancient winegrowing areas, such as Lebanon and Greece. The Mockingbird serves as a casual café counterpart with morning espresso drinks and smoothies, in addition to shawarma and falafel for a later – noon meal.
About the floor, La Piscina rooftop bar serves up coastal Mexican cuisine pool- side-by-side ceviches, broiled fish, and housemade tortillas charred on an open comal. The cocktails glow bright, also, with frozen margaritas, Mexican beers, and small-batch tequilas. And if you’ve reserved a room for the night, head to Goldie’s sunken bar for a seduc- tive guests-only hideaway surrounded by floral background, handblown glass lighting, and rose-tinted marble cocktail tables. Simply said, a nightcap this is like gold.
