Hi Austin Chowhounders,
I'm going to be visiting my wife's family in Austin this weekend, and I'm looking for a place to recommend to take them out to a meal (brunch, dinner, I don't know what), my treat. I'd like to try to wow them with some new possibilities (courtesy of all of you!).
I'm looking for anything (Tex-Mex, American, whatever) sitdown with table service and preferably "nice" (since I'd be taking out some 80 year-olds). I'm thinking they're not going to be into anything divey, no matter how tasty.
We'll be staying near the intersection of the South Capital of Texas Highway and Bee Caves Road. I think the area is West Lake Hills. So, something not too far would be good (maybe not the far side of Austin). I'm guessing downtown-ish isn't too far for them (they'll be driving).
Any help would be appreciated!
