Welcome to Nido: Austin’s most glamorous respite.

Away from the restless energy of the city, Nido at The Loren is a true rooftop oasis. Step into the glass elevator from the lobby of The Loren and emerge through the trees, and into a world of sophisticated cuisine and casually impeccable service.

Seasonal cues and the finest offerings from local purveyors are signatures of the Nido’s Modern American menu, uniquely balancing Texas Hill Country rusticity with refined culinary techniques and precision, paired with an extensive curated selection of wine and spirits—all against a backdrop of the very best views in the city, overlooking acres of verdant parkland, Lady Bird Lake, and downtown Austin.

We offer something for everyone—healthy, nutritional ingredients friendly to plant-based or restrictive diets, along with classic comfort foods and indulgent desserts.

culinary philosophy

Our approach to food is simple. We work with the purest ingredients possible and let them speak for themselves, only adding a flourish—a kiss of fire or pure oil to accentuate; aging to concentrate flavor and tenderness, or seasonal herbs to highlight the time of year.

We work from a classic culinary repertoire, elevating familiar dishes and favorite flavors. We seek out the best local ingredients when possible— peaches find their flavor peak in nearby Fredericksburg, and local Meyer lemons or pink grapefruits are next to none. Hardwoods from the Texas Hill Country are our native coals.

We offer something for everyone—healthy, nutritional ingredients friendly to plant-based or restrictive diets, along with classic comfort foods and indulgent desserts.
