Austin has no shortage of beautiful restaurant spaces, but the Fairmont Hotel’s signature restaurant was not one of them. The facade is a Vegas-meets-Hill Country fever dream, the textiles seem pulled from the darkest reaches of Calico Corners, and the cubby holes along the wall don’t make sense. But it is also one of precious few new restaurants that is able to make a special occasion actually seem special. While other new restaurants seem to exist solely for Instagram, Garrison came through where it really counts: impeccable service, an inspiring beverage program, and a kitchen team that knocks it out of the park every time.
