DETAILS

Sure, it's celebrity owner is Oscar-winning actress and Austin home girl Sandra Bullock, but the outstanding food is reason enough to visit Bess Bistro.  

 

Full bar. Serving dinner nightly. Sun brunch 10:30 am-2:30 pm.

From the restaurant's website:

"Bess is an authentic bistro in the Stratford Arms building at 500 W. Sixth St., Austin's Old Pecan Street. Originally the Stratford Apartments built in 1918, the vintage building's old bank vault is Bess' kitchen, a treasury of great food today. ... The menu deliberately defies classification. Creole-inspired Shrimp Bess beckons comfortably beside Croque Monsieur. Natural, organic and light offerings are right at home with old fashioned mac and cheese and steak frites. 


"This quaint, cozy space owned by actress Sandra Bullock features cuisine best described as classic European meets the Old South."
