The latest Austin based Italian restaurant, Juliet presents a dinner menu inspired by the bounty and creativity of Italy.  Juliet brings together a menu featuring fresh ingredients inspired by the bounty and creativity of Italy with an atmosphere recalling the ease and frivolity of “La Dolce Vita”. Chef Jacob Weaver, who previously served as Executive Chef of Asti combines a variation of traditional Italian favorites like wood fired pizza, pasta, seafood and steak with a rotating selection seasonal of daily specials and a diverse selection of pastries and desserts.  The crafted menu also changes seasonally based on what is locally available.

Juliet offers an elevated Italian casual dining experience with the relaxed atmosphere of Barton Springs Rd.  Together with Chef Weaver and the staff, they’ve created a dining experience that appeals to both locals and tourists.

 

I believe the essence of Italian cuisine is derived from what is grown or harvested nearby, and I think the terroir and environs of Texas present so many similarities to that of Italy. I look forward to having the Texas surroundings inspire the soul of my Italian cooking.

-Chef Weaver

 

Austinites and designers Paul Clayton of Clayton Little Architects designed the building while Joel Mozersky lead the interior design team.  Mark Word designed the lush garden area on the patio providing a beautiful landscape that offers the perfect setting for warm outdoor dining.

 

The finely whitewashed stucco building offers a classic and modern style found around the Mediterranean providing a refreshing look to the old building that has seen many changes through out the years.  The space is airy offering a classic Italian style mixed with the modern spirit and vibe of Austin. This is the perfect spot for romantics and casual diners alike as diners will find themselves surrounded in the glow the Venetian plaster walls, walnut millwork, antiqued brass accents, and cozy leather booths.
