[Austin] Green Pastures restaurant in Texas: Dining Posted October 22, 2007 I went back and read through all the menus and they do not really strike me as being southern. They seem to be much more new American with some Texas touches. And yes, the menus do read well. It was apparent the chef was trying to source local when he could and that is good and very positive. This menu has more southern influences to me than the one at Green Pastures. Quite possibly, the setting and the level of the service staff are what creates that atmosphere a person would think of as old south. Maybe I will have to give this a try the next time I am down that way. Thanks for the heads up on it.←I would agree with the new American, not Southern take on Green Pastures. Granted they do have a sprinkling of Texas South fare, and of course the bread pudding with Jack Daniels sauce. It does look like a fresh ingredient driven menu. The prices are a bit much, even for the freshest ingredients.
