Locally-sourced, locally-owned and locally-loved.You know how every time you check out the news, it seems like Austin is making yet another "best of" list for being awesome? Well, you can add Hickory Street to the tally of examples that make this city unique and progressive. You may recognize the Hickory Street name. Hickory Street Bar and Grill was located in the whimsical northwest nook of 8th and Congress for decades. Don't be fooled though, this Hickory Street is a whole new ballgame. Captained by former Bess Head Chef Camden Stuerzenberger, Hickory Street features a predominantly locally sourced menu with a gourmet flair.
As you walk through the front gate of Hickory Street, you will be greeted by a large fruit and veggie garden adorning the patio. If the garden implies anything about the restaurant that lies beyond it, it’s that freshness is key. That’s why the menu at Hickory Street features ingredients sourced by over 15 local farmers and artisans. Patrons will also notice a sizable gluten free menu perfect for wheat yea-ers and nay-ers alike. When words like “quail”, “quinoa” and “fig” usually mean high dollars signs these days, Hickory Street keeps it affordable for foodies who appreciate the farm to table ideology.
