hello, bostonian CHs. i used to actually post around these parts a wayyyy long time ago. but then i texpatriated to austin and as a result, just lurk around these day.
it's been over 3 years since i've been back in the city, so i have a lot of catching up to do during my july trip. of course, i have my old favorites but i am wondering what i've been missing since 2005.
can you recommend (or warn me against) any new-to-me places that are fairly recent additions and worth checking out?
given my dining companions, i am looking for more casual or moderate places as opposed to fine dining.
p.s. since i live in austin, i will not be having anything resembling mexican or BBQ during my trip, as i get my fill of that here now.
