We've lived out in Steiner Ranch for a little over a year, and I think that I must just be missing something when it comes to great food. That's what I'm hoping at least. Otherwise, we really do have to drive 30+ minutes to get a decent meal and that's the one blemish on our otherwise happy home location.
Thus far I know about the following:
--Lakeside Pizza and Grill: Good option for grabbing a pizza and a beer. Kid friendly but regularly packed. At some point though there's more to life than pizza and burgers.
--Fion: a wine bar within walking distance from home- what more could I ask for? The wine flights and cheese menu are completely unexpected in this planned community. Even so, they are not a true restaurant although you can order pizza out from Lakeside and bring it over to eat with your wine.
--Delicato Creamery: love them. The gelato is yummy and their tapas and fondue on Friday and Saturday nights is a close and fun option for meeting friends from the neighborhood. Sadly they are also small and not the best option for large groups or even a more traditional sit-down meal.
--Tutto Gusto: don't even get me started. Yuck! Double Yuck.
--Mood and Food: a little proud of their food but the polenta fries are good. The wine list could be better though.
--Lakeway restaurants: I'm just not impressed with what I've found. I've been to Pao's of course but really, every other experience in Lakeway has just been so-so.
So, what am I missing? There has to be a way to have a great dinner without driving miles and miles to get there.
