Arlo Grey at the Line Hotel, Austin
Arlo Grey is inside the Line Hotel in downtown Austin. It offers an imaginative weekend brunch menu with interesting options like duck confit hash and house-made chorizo on braised greens. It is a small menu, but everything looked worthy of a try.

|Wild rice and quinoa bowl with a soft egg and avocado|
|Prosciutto and yolk tartine on Texas toast topped with raddicchio|
|I enjoyed their color scheme of carnation and cobalt|
The beignets were especially good and were served very hot on a cooling sour cream base. The bacon "jam" was savory, salty and sweet. The quinoa bowl was very filling and good. The texture of the yolk on the tartine was a little strange. The yolk was cooked, but had an odd texture. There was a large piece of Texas challah toast, so it was a very filling dish, as well.
The restaurant overlooks the river and it pretty and very bright with natural light. The only nearby parking is valet, which cost $10. I would definitely like to try everything on the menu! The hotel is also very nice looking and is in a convenient location.
