On our first night out in Austin, Adam & I did dinner [well] at COUNTER 3. FIVE. VII. Adam had stumbled upon Counter while he was shooting a commercial in Austin about 6 weeks ago, had been raving about it and couldn't wait to take me while we were out there!
COUNTER 3. FIVE. VII. is a haute cuisine experience in a fun & low-key atmosphere. No tables, just pull up to the Counter and enjoy your night of fantastic food as you watch the wizards work behind the counter.
You won't find any menus here, simply choose if you'd like to indulge in 3, 5 or 7 courses (we went with 5) and let the girl taking your reservation know if you have any food allergies and/or restrictions. Adam & I opted to do the wine pairings with our meal, which I highly recommend -- we sipped on some of the most delicious (mainly Italian) wines that paired perfectly with each course! The most beautiful rosé paired with our first, salmon, and as each dish got a bit more robust, the wines followed.
Hope your enjoy the photo of our meal and if your traveling to Austin + enjoy fantastic food & wine (who doesn't, really!?), definitely add COUNTER 3. FIVE. VII. to your list of must eat places! xx

Sarah, Counter's pastry Chef created this insane dessert inspired by all things Beet! She even used the leaf (as you can see on top!) It seriously was one of the most amazing desserts I've ever had!
and finally, our incredible meal was complete after this creamy, chewy, pistachio nougat was placed in front of us. OMG. (lol)
