Journey through four distinct culinary worlds that come together for a vibrant and colorful dining experience. Revue’s unique approach to cuisine is defined by its diversity and includes the timeless cuisine of Italy, the epicurean and cultural complexities of Asia, and the delicacies of the Sea, topped off with delicious treats from the artisanal pastry shop. Revue emphasizes on sourcing and preparing locally grown and made products in all aspects of this communal and shareable restaurant that truly has something for everyone.

Focusing on beverages and located in the main lobby, this common ground pays homage to the musically buzzed streets of Austin with live music, and the deep roots of The Lone Star State’s grand old oak, The Big Tree, just outside of Fulton, Texas. This is the new, iconic meeting place of Austin and the beating pulse of Fairmont. Fulton is a place to sip and swirl local wine, beer and spirits while enjoying relaxed dining, live music and delicious plates to share. Just tell your friends you’ll meet them ‘under the Big Oak Tree’ at Fairmont Austin…They’ll know where to be.
