One of Austin’s most promising Italian restaurants is adding one of our favorite things — happy hour.
The Mueller eatery L’Oca d’Oro will have food and drink specials on the menu starting on Monday. The goal behind the restaurant’s happy hour, which will run 5 to 6:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, is to have snacks, small plates and creative drinks not on the regular menu available at lower prices. (The restaurant is closed Tuesdays.)
Here’s what you’ll get during L’Oca d’Oro’s hour-and-a-half of dining deals.
Drinks:Beet-chelada: spicy mezcal-beet puree with 10 oz. of Live Oak Berliner Weisse. $3. Argento Americano Spritz. $4.
Snacks:Mozzarella sticks with dandelion-hazelnut pesto. $6. Grilled sourdough with Bagna cauda. $4. Spiced chicharrones. $4. Pickle plate. $4.
The Statesman’s restaurant critic Matthew Odam just published a glowing review of L’Oca d’Oro, located at 1900 Simond Ave., in this week’s Austin360 and on mystatesman.com. Read up on what to expect before you go.
