Reco for Friday night dinner for visitor to Austin

jrabbit2727 | Apr 19, 2011 08:32 AM

Travelling to Austin for the weekend at the start of May. I have booked Uchi for Sat night (been there and liked it and want my hubby to try it) but we need a restaurant for Friday eve. We are driving from Houston so not necessarily up for a whole formal dinner - but instead some cool creative food in a funky atmosphere.

Just came back from we've had our fill of Mexican food for now. And while we like it....Italian is too commonplace for what we are looking for.

Initially I had booked Wink - but I think this may be more fancy than we are up for. What is Chez Zee like? Recommendations welcome!

We are staying at the W downtown. We have a car but I don't necessarily want to drive too far that eve.

Uchi Restaurant
801 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704

Chez Zee
5406 Balcones Dr., Austin, TX 78731
