This also means that Bar Congress, the lauded cocktail bar tucked between the former Congress and Second Bar, is no longer as well. Replacing beverage director and mixologist Jason Stevens’ playground is Second Bar (not to be confused with the restaurant proper). Unlike its predecessor, it offers actual dining rooms and the full menu.

Everything at 2nd Bar + Kitchen was great: the location, food, and service. We ordered a great sampling of various items on the menu and nothing disappointed. Particularly good were the buffalo fried pickles, the roast chicken, the short rib, and the sides (okra, brussels sprouts). Our server, Andy, was really fun and accommodating as well. we had a group of 8 and it was the perfect place for a large group!

Niecy (Austin)·Dined on July 20, 2011I'm a huge David Bull fan and had been wanting to try this place since it opened. The mixologists behind the bar were extremely knowledgeable and made each cocktail with care (even crushing ice by hand). The food was fantastic. We tried all of the small plates and several apps. The blue crab and corn fritters, baked ricotta, and gnocchi were my favorites. The crispy pork belly was scrumptious. The only bad part was the dessert. We ordered most of them and were not impressed. If we had ended with our meal, it would have been perfect. Of course, having our waitress send Chef Bull out to our table kicked up way back up to excellence. It was a wonderful experience. I can't wait to try Congress. I just hope the desserts have improved.Tags: Vibrant Bar Scene, Fit for Foodies, Good for Groups, Neighborhood Gem, Romantic, Special Occasion, Hot SpotWas this review useful to you?Yes·No·Reportfood4ambience5service4
