We’ve dined at Truluck’s when we were in Miami and decided to try it on our Austin trip. Same high end service and great choices whether for wine or food.

I think they have some decent options for salads and lots of their sides are vegetarian but not vegan. Think there was Mac n cheese, mushrooms, mashed potatoes. Things like that.
