You Need To Try :: Intero

Artistic and decadent, the Italian cuisine and chocolate pairings at Intero are the perfect balance.


2612 East Cesar Chavez

While your friends tend to go straight to the appetizer menu at a restaurant, you're secretly scanning the dessert list to see just how sweet your night will turn out. 

Suit everyone's fancy at Intero, now open in East Austin. The inviting restaurant from talented couple Ian Thurwachter (formerly chef at Vespaio and Jeffrey’s) and Krystal Craig (owner of Crave Artisan Chocolate) focuses evenly on decadent chocolate like smoked ganache and honeycomb and chai bark, and modern Italian fare such as hand cut pappardelle with citrus ricotta and duck leg confit with taleggio risotto. Stop at the chocolate counter on your way in to pick out trufflesvegan and G-free options available —to pair with wine at your table. The weekly rotating menu will keep you on your toes while cocktails like the mezcal spiked Worth the Trip will keep you in your seat. 

'Til the bittersweet end.
