Steiner Ranch Dining and Shopping

This month, we’re spotlighting the Steiner Ranch neighborhood of Austin, Texas.  This week we’ll be exploring some of the dining and shopping options available in this master-planned community in Northwest Austin.
Cho Sushi Japanese Fusion is beloved for its scrumptious sushi featuring fish so fresh you’ll swear it just swam onto your plate.  They also have delicious cooked dishes like Teriyaki Chicken and even have a Kid’s menu.  Go for sushi at prices that won’t leave you in the poor house, but be warned seating is tight, so be prepared to wait and don’t expect a quiet romantic dinner.

Spent the day on the lake and looking to squelch that roaring hunger?  Zack’s American Bistro is just the place to come for American food packed with unique flavors.  Add in a carefully curated wine list and great beer selection, and you’ve got a fantastic evening with the family or friends.

Want to impress visitors by taking them to a restaurant with a lakeview?  The Oasis on Lake Travis is the place to go.  Make sure you make reservations for dinner so you can get a spot on their multi-level deck that gives you a front row seat to the best Sunset in Texas.  Seriously, it’s amazing and not to be missed!  The food is a standard mix of Tex-Mex and American fare, but you’ll hardly notice it when you are taking in the scenery!

The Treasury at the Oasis is a place to find home decor treasures from around the world without leaving Steiner Ranch!  The owners love to travel and pick up art, accessories, and furniture from all over the globe, which they bring back to sell in their store.  They also offer interior design services if you just want someone else to do the work for you!

Looking to cook up some delicious meat?  BBQ Outfitters is where you want to head to!  Combine an amazing selection of grills, parts and accessories and friendly salespeople who know anything and everything about barbecuing, and you have the perfect place to start or expand your meat-cooking hobby.

Arboretum Dining, Shopping and Entertainment

This month, we’re spotlighting the Arboretum neighborhood of Austin, Texas.  This week, we’ll be exploring a sampling of the great dining, entertainment, and shopping available in this neighborhood on the Northside of Austin.  

If you like to shop, The Arboretum Mall is conveniently nestled in the middle of this area.  It has over 40 shops and restaurants to fulfill your every little desire.  

Barnes and Noble, the national bookseller, has a very large location in the Arboretum.  There's also a Starbucks in the store, so you can sip while you peruse the vast selection of books and magazines.

If you're looking for unique clothing and accessories, Francesca's Collection, has you covered.  From one-of-a-kind dresses and blouses, to jewelry you won't find anywhere else, Francesca's Collection is a boutique-shopping experience without the boutique price tag.

If all this shopping has got you in need of some relaxation, Aziz Salon and Day Spa can give you a complete makeover, from a massage, to a haircut, to a facial.  Walk out feeling like a brand new person!

Hungry after your rejuvenating afternoon of beauty?  You're in luck, because the Arboretum is home to a ton of restaurants.  

The Cheesecake Factory serves delicious home-cooked style favorites in large enough portions to share or take home for tomorrow's lunch and also recently added a lower-calorie portion of their menu if you want to keep your New Year's Resolution or at least save room for their famous Cheesecake.

If a more casual dining experience is your goal, Five Guys Burgers and Fries serves scrumptious, fresh burgers and fries that smoke the fast food competition.  

Why not cap off your tasty meal with a trip to Amy's Ice Creams, the Austin stalwart that lets you pick your favorite candies or fruits and have them mixed into one of their house made ice cream varieties by exuberant youths in funny hats.  With 350 different flavors rotated through their stores, every visit is a chance to give your tastebuds a vacation to an exotic locale.
