A couple that I am friends with was in town from LA this weekend. They asked me if there was any restaurant in Austin that you couldn't get into if wearing flip flops. I could not think of one. I said that there are some places I wouldn't wear flip flops to, but I did not know of any places that had a strict dress code.
They were denied admission at a neighborhood place a couple of weeks ago in LA because he was wearing flip flops (though he was wearing them with Jeans and a nice collared shirt)
What restaurants in Austin have dress codes?
