Soleil Dishes up a Fresh, Flavorful and Diverse Menu Served with a View
The Oasis is a small collection of shops and eateries located near the beautiful Lake Travis that sports a theme of adventure and exploration.
It’s one of the must-see attractions if you’re ever in the Austin area or an Austin native that hasn’t been in the area.
Soleil Bar & Grill boasts the same adventurous spirit with its menu that is made up of diverse dishes made exclusively with fresh ingredients.
The entire menu itself was redesigned by former Executive Chef David Burton Sanchez in January of last year.
He adapted Soleil’s dishes to his own eclectic style, which knows no boundaries culturally or regionally. Soleil offers diners an affordable selection of breakfast and brunch seafood cuisine coupled with breathtaking views of the lake.
I was invited back to write a story for Popular Hispanics and was able to sample a small selection of innovative appetizers, including the Lump Crab Torta (a French crabcake), Seared Sea Scallops with sweet corn risotto, spicy chili coulis, popcorn shoots, and the Seared Sea Bass served with Edamame and corn succotash with Applewood Smoked Bacon Hollandaise.
At the same time I was also treated to Veal & Waffles dish (one of the more popular appetizers) that’s served with a rum raisin butter, chive pesto, butternut squash waffle, veal sweet bread, all soaked in buttermilk for seasoning before it’s rolled in flour and sautéed. Each dish boasts a unique flavor profile, and still a testament to Soleil's penchant for diversity.
At the end of my visit I concluded that the Soleil restaurant is a hidden gem that most folks have yet to discover. So if you’re looking to go on a culinary journey on your own or with your family, go check out Soleil for yourself. Not only will you enjoy a diversity of great food, but also experience beautiful views of Lake Travis. So be adventurous and go check out Soleil for a new dining experience.
