Fixe Southern House

6-Course Contemporary Southern Dinner Event

Imagine buttermilk fried chicken, lobster and crawfish pie, red grouper with grits, sweet tea pickles, and, of course, biscuits, all elevated to the highest level of culinary art, and you have Fixe Southern House. Located in the downtown IBC Bank Tower, this clubby-feeling establishment features antique sideboards, framed mirrors and the like, but the centerpiece, of course, is the food itself, which has earned Fixe a place on Open Table’s list of the “Best Southern Restaurants in the U.S.” Executive Chef/Co-owner James Robert comes by this food honestly, having been born and raised in Opelousas, Louisiana in a family where everyone cooked. He has worked at fine Austin eateries, including Brio Vista and Eddie V’s at the Arboretum and now, at Fixe, he is deep-diving into his culinary heritage with a sense of celebration and adventure. We will be taking over Fixe for this event, and Chef Robert will be chewing the fat with us, answering your questions and discussing the many ways that Southern cuisine is such a national treasure.
