I just got back from the new Italian restaurant on Dawson and Barton Springs. I had a ham, mozzarella and tomato panini, it was first class and reasonably priced for the quality. The tomato was sweet, fresh and tasty like it was right out of the garden. With iced tea and tip, lunch for one came to about $12. Not cheap, but not out of line, either.
The name of the place is Gypsy ( http://go2gypsy.com ). It's a Northern Italian place. The menu for dinner looks good, so that's on the to-do list for the next date night.
It's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner Tues-Sat. It also looks like a nice place to stop in for a relaxed coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. I urged the owner to start a Sunday brunch. He said that they were planning to do so, but he wanted to make sure the staff was comfortable with the current menu before springing a completely new one on them. Maybe these guys are on the ball and will be around for a while.
It's worth checking out. It a good addition to the neighborhood.
