Congress is Austin’s fine dining jewel, from which 2012 Rising Star Chef David Bull crafts playful, cerebral cuisine. White leather, handcrafted tables, and modern metal chandeliers set the tone for Bull’s tasting-menu-only format. Dinner here is an experience: Bull’s dishes layer an idea, flavor, or ingredient on each plate, and diners can choose to savor the combinations, thinking through each bite, or devour them with sheer pleasure. And no evening at Congress is complete without wine pairings from Rising Star Sommelier June Rodil, who presents guests with little known gems, beers, and tableside charm.
