We're headed back to Austin on business this week. I've been searching this board, but haven't had a lot of luck. Looking for some new/fresh dinner reccomendations. Here's where we've been:
1) Uchi (twice). Loved it.
2) Fonda San Miguel. This was also really good. Great food, service, and a beautiful setting.
3) County Line. Above average, but nothing special.
4) Chuy's. Average tex mex. Was OK, but wouldn't go back.
5) Smitty's (Lockhart). Awesome 'cue.
So for this trip- hoping to find a new place to try that is has a fun atmosphere for drinks/happy hour and at least above average (hopefully great) food. We're game for any type of cuisine and price isn't a huge factor. Is there anything hound-worthy downtown in the 4th or 6th street area?
Also, do you have any recs for lunch or dinner in the north Austin area (near N. Lamar and Braker Ln)?
Thanks so much!
