The 14 Best Austin Restaurants for Avoiding SXSW Crowds

Juice and salads Target destination: Juiceland Delicious alternative: Vinaigrette

Even with locations all over the city, the most central locations of Juiceland will surely attract festival goers like moths to a flame. After all, there's no better way to counter SXSW's flowing supply of booze than with delicious, nutritious juices, smoothies, quinoa and kale. Instead, seek out Vinaigrette, a brand-new salad spot just off South Congress. In addition to fresh-pressed juices, Vinaigrette offers a hangover-relieving ginger-turmeric tonic and a full menu of salads, sandwiches and soups. The idyllic patio is also the perfect place to seek solace from the chaos of downtown, ideally while sipping a Raspbeeta margarita or That Green Drink, made with fresh celery, kale, jalapeño, lime, ginger, tequila and pink Himalayan sea salt.
