Dai due regni di natura, piglia il cibo con misura.

From the two kingdoms of nature, choose food with care.


About Dai Due

Dai Due was created in 2006 to reconsider what “our” food is and will be.  By using ingredients that are present in our region, we are able to serve foods that are fresher, buy food that is produced in a fair and equitable way, represent local culinary traditions, and support farmers and ranchers who are striving to improve the quality of our food.


About our Ingredients

We only use food that we can find in our region, so the bounties and scarcities of the seasons are always the theme; we have asparagus for three or four glorious weeks, look forward to the apples in August, and are grateful when we are blessed in the rare year that apricots arrive. We marvel at fall flounder, lament using our last potato for a few months, and miss our South Texas lemons when they disappear in the Spring. But, they always come back next year.

Because of this focus, preservation is key. We dry, can, pickle, ferment, smoke, candy and freeze like pioneers, and we love the challenge and reward of the infinite puzzle of making food in such a beautiful and volatile place.

We do not use vegetables and fruit grown far away, meats from factory farms, fish that are not from our waters, or foreign cheeses.

We cook predominately with Texas olive oil, animal fats from hogs, beef, chicken, and duck, and organic butter.

Almost all of our dry goods and vinegars are certified organic. We buy mostly organic grains and corn grown and milled in Texas.

Our wines and beers are from Texas. The wines are never made from imported grapes.  We believe in these industries and feel that these products represent the true terroir of Texas.

All of our non-alcoholic beverages are made in-house, and likewise reflect the generosities of the markets.



We take reservations in the dining room for lunch and dinner, and our patio, bar and counter are always open for walk-ins.

Saturday and Sunday brunch is walk-in only. 

Not all reservations are available online, so if you don't see the time you're looking for, please give us a call at 512.524.0688. For parties of 13 or more, please email caroline@daidue.com.
