Special restaurant for a 21st Birthday celebration

angelhair | Feb 4, 201510:59 AM     7

I'm coming to Austin to visit my two young adult children who live there (and to get away from the horrible NYC weather). One of them recently turned 21 and we'd like to have a nice, celebratory dinner. I've done a fair amount of research on places I'd like to hit up, either now or in the future, including old favorites (original Chuy's, Threadgill's, Hillside Pharmacy, Cisco's, Fonda San Miguel), newer places like Barley Swine, Odd Duck, Uchiko, Uchi, Qui, bbq (not waiting on line for Franklin's) and other odds and ends like Hudson's on the Bend, Garage Mahal, Nubian Queen Lola Cajun. Plus food trucks.

What would be most fun/best food for dinner or brunch for a special celebration? Preferably something that a young adult might not be able to afford, but Mom and Dad can! We love all types of food but are interested in something uniquely Austin. Other suggestions for other meals welcome as well.
