Reviews for Swift's Attic
Full disclosure, I walked into Swift's Attic with prematurely warm feelings. Those feelings were satisfied, even exceeded (more on that in a minute), but I must tell you that this is one of my favorite spots in Austin. Downstairs at the Elephant Room, Austin's finest (and darkest) jazz club, I had my first date with my then-boyfriend, now-husband. Upstairs, I enjoyed many a sushi happy hour at Kyoto in its heyday, and was sad to see it go. This is all to say that 315 Congress Ave. attracts magical vibes, so I had high hopes for Swift's Attic. Those hopes were not dashed. Chef Mat Clouser has an impressive Austin restaurant pedigree, having manned the kitchens of Kenichi, Uchi, and Jeffrey's. I ordered the Grilled Kale Caesar Salad, which sounded virtuous, as well as the rum-buttered Lockhart Quail, which did not. Both made me reach over to my company with bite-filled forks, shouting, "Oh my God. Oh my God. You must try this RIGHT NOW." They did, and we swooned together over the salty-fresh quality of the one, the sweet-rich taste of the other. One fun trivia factoid about Swift's? It lives inside the 1905 home of Swift's Premium Food Co., and gestures to its historic Austin roots with plenty of early 20th, slightly steampunk touches. It also has a "late night" menu for rowdy downtowners, featuring a dessert that sounds naughty enough for late night escapades: Chocolate Six Ways. I didn't order it, already full from my feast, but watched longingly as it passed by. Order it for me, will you?
