Paté Melt and Red Curry Rabbit Rillette at Backbeat, Austin
You can't swing a belt buckle in Austin without hitting a kitschy taco or barbecue rib joint. But Backbeat, with its sleek, modern cocktail lounge downstairs and a rooftop patio with a bird's eye view of downtown Austin, clearly sets itself apart. While creative cocktails like the Sherry Cobbler and the Leisure Suit keep the menu Austin-worthy weird, the snack menu is anything but. It's a tie between red curry rabbit rillette, which is slow-braised and spreads warmly over fresh French country bread and comes with tangy farmhouse pickles, and then there's also the Paté Melt. With house-made pork and chicken paté, dijon aioli, melted gruyere, friseé, and shaved fennel on a toasted ploughman's loaf. No snap-button cowboy shirt required.
