[AUS] Dinner on Valentine’s Day—the best of what’s left?

MPH | Jan 27, 2006 12:33 PM

What’s the best place to go for dinner on Valentine’s Day for serious foodies who embrace any opportunity to enjoy a fine meal? Amazing food is the first and foremost requirement, though the appropriate atmosphere is important.

Aquarelle, a top choice, is no longer taking reservations. The Driskill Grill only has seatings after 9:45 P.M. I don’t know yet if Fonda San Miguel or Uchi is taking reservations that night because they don’t answer their phones until after 4 P.M.

Do any veterans of past Valentine’s-Day dinners in Austin have a good restaurant suggestion?

FYI: There are still reservations available at Cafe Josie, which is serving a $60 per-person prix-fixe menu only (posted at www. and Mirabelle, serving a prix-fixe menu for $65 per person, though their menu is not yet posted on-line.
