Fabi & Rosi (Austin Restaurant Week)


Austin Restaurant Week is a celebration of dining in Austin and of Austin’s amazing Culinary Arts. Participants are given the opportunity to dine at the finest establishments throughout the city, ranging from $10 – $15 for lunch and $25 – $35 for dinner for a three-course pre-fixe menu.



Owners Wolfgang, from Germany, and Cassie, a native Austinite, met on a family friend’s yacht in Mallorca Spain. The name came from Wolfgang’s nephew and niece, Fabio, 6 yrs old and Rosalie, 3 yrs old. He had planned on calling it “Fabio’s”, however in America that name has a different connotation, so Rosalie’s nick- name was added and both kids were very excited. The cuisine at Fabi + Rosi is classic European comfort food with a young and modern twist. Sustainability and sourcing local, seasonal, all-natural/ organic provisions is top priority in the kitchen. The interior, both warm and inviting, modern and crisp, was designed and installed by Cassie.
