A small group of New York City chowhounds are headed out to Austin for a long weekend at the end of the month and look forward to no fewer than 9 meals while we are there.
Question is-- where to go.
We are staying in Downtown Austin- but have car and will definitely travel great distances if the food is deserving.
We are focusing on dinner places- but lunch recs are welcome as well.
We had hoped for
1. a late night place for one night- great fun food at a place open late
2. an upscale place for sat night- great wine list a must
3. the best of the best- anything you guys can dream up
We've done some research and besides definitely needing to drive to a place called Lockhart (where/what is this-- and what is the protocol?) for BBQ.
We've gotten some recs for Jeffrey's and Caste Hill. Thoughts?
Your help is much appreciated!!
