1417 French Bistro is a warm and friendly neighborhood restaurant that embraces the culture of dining at a true French bistro. Owner Allison Welsh curated the desirable restaurant space to feel inviting, yet elevated with modern artwork, mid-century furniture and a lush array of plants. Executive Chef Kyle Mulligan is classically trained in French cuisine, creating classic dishes like french onion soup, escargot vol au vent, poisson meuniére and steak au poivre.
Pastry guru Amy Moore and bread whisperer Maggie Fluger have created a mouth watering dessert and bread program. Neighborhood favorites include the pistachio bombe, mousse au chocolate, brioche roll, and a whole wheat fougasse.
The cocktail program is a love note to 1417 from our front of house manager Anise Broussard. A mix of classics like sidecars, sazeracs and daiquiris along with original cocktails that should not be overlooked.
1417 has been featured in Texas Monthly’s Dining Guide and as a top Austin restaurant in Tribeza, Austin American-Statesman, Local Palate, and Uproxx.
