Cannon + Belle: Texas Food for Everyone

Cannon + Belle, the main restaurant at the Hilton Austin downtown invited Michelle of Foodie is the New Forty to a media dinner, and she invited me to accompany her! A big thanks to Cannon + Belle for having us, and to our waitress Lindsay who was fantastic. I was not monetarily compensated for this blog post and all opinions are my own.

Calling their style "Texas fresh: chef-crafted flavors in living room style comfort," Cannon + Belle has an extensive number of local farms and purveyors that they work with. Open daily from 6:30 am - 10 pm, with brunch on Sundays as well. They will be offering an Easter brunch special on April 1st, 11 am - 3 pm. Here's the rundown of what we tried.
Cannon and Belle cocktails
Cocktails to start! The Metabolic Mule and Angelina's Punch are just a few options from their creative bar program.
Cannon and Belle white pizza
The white pizza with fresh oregano leaves. This was SUPER cheesy and also loaded with garlic, yum yum!
Cannon and Belle honey and black garlic chicken wings
The Honey + Black Garlic chicken wings with a white barbecue sauce. These were outstanding!

Cannon and Belle sweet pea cake
The Sweet Pea Cake, their version of a veggie burger. Attractive presentation with a savory yogurt sauce and rainbow veggies, but a bit tough and salty overall.
Cannon and Belle scallops
Beautifully seared scallops in a brown butter sauce, these were cooked to perfection, as were the green beans, which still had a snap to them. And honestly, for $27, not badly priced for a hotel restaurant.

Cannon and Belle peach crisp dessert
Peach and blueberry crisp, with a nice amount of crumble on top.

Cannon and Belle chocolate stack cake
The salted caramel chocolate stack cake, the decadent and amazing finale to our meal! This is a good size piece of cake, and we couldn't finish it. Layers of chocolatey goodness and buttercream frosting with salted caramel on top. Pure bliss for the chocolate lover.

So whether you're a local Austinite looking for a fun place or a visitor staying at the Hilton, Cannon + Belle has plenty of Texas comfort food for everyone.
