When you’re entertaining business associates, friends or family, it can be a challenge to pick the perfect place. Lucky for you, at Schmitz & Smith, we love a great party, and we know all the best restaurants in town to host your event. Since we are your experts on Austin neighborhoods, we thought we’d share some of the best restaurants for parties in our favorite parts of Austin. This week we’ll take you to Crestview.

Crestview is one of Austin’s favorite areas to live and play. The area was developed in the 1950’s & 60’s, and the charming bungalows and craftsman style homes reflect that era. With easy access to Anderson Lane, Burnet Road and Lamar Blvd, excellent dining and shopping options abound. Crestview is centrally located, yet out of the hustle of downtown, so it’s a great area to have your event.



7310 Burnet Rd

Austin, TX 78757

Ichiban feels like a kitschy, throwback-style sushi place, from the charming koi pond and bridge in the entry to the traditional Japanese seating. But the food is an inspired combination of traditional methods and modern creativity. Ichiban would be a unique place for a truly memorable event, with dramatic presentations of sushi, colorful and tasty cocktails and a wide selection of sake.




Twisted Root Burger Company

7211 Burnet Rd

Austin, TX 78757

Who doesn’t love a great burger and beer? Throw into the mix the best milkshake you’ve ever had (with or without alcohol), a stellar selection of craft beer, a 9-hole mini-golf course and Caddyshack-style bar and you have a fun and funky venue for a fabulous event.




Blackstar Co-Op

7020 Easy Wind Dr

Austin, TX 78752

A uniquely Austin pub and brewery, Blackstar is a cooperative company, funded and inspired by its member-owners. For a private event, you could arrange a brewery tour and tasting, or enjoy the locally-inspired menu paired with house-made beer.
