Just a stone's throw from the Texas State Capitol and the Governor's Mansion sits this Texas-sized steakhouse, located in Austin's historic Norwood Tower. Perry's, established in 1979, is part of small chain of Texas restaurants that grew from a family butcher shop in Houston. Naturally, it's all about the beef. Beyond USDA Prime steaks, you can also find lobster and fresh seafood dishes, thick pork chops, flaming desserts, and a thorough selection of world-class wines. White tablecloths, and crystal stemware set the right tone for special occasions. The atmosphere leans toward contemporary, with its modern light fixtures and mid-century-style chairs, but Perry's still retains classic steakhouse touches like dark wood paneling and wine racks that cover entire walls. Reservations are recommended. This is just the kind of place Texas lawmakers like to go to for a gimlet and a big cowboy rib-eye after a long filibuster on the floor of the House— the last time we had one, Perry's was packed.
