Coming down to Austin the weekend of 4/28 staying downtown off of 6th. Based on the boards i have requested a reservation at Congress for saturday but i am looking at other recommendations for the following.
Saturday lunch (thinking lamberts)
Sunday breakfast, lunch and dinner (thinking parkside or wink)
Monday breakfast and lunch (thinking Ranch 616)
Ideally the places would be downtown or a short cab from there.
For breakfast we would prefer what is good locally opposed to any particular cusine. As for lunch and dinner...I would love recommendations for places with great local chefs .. (btw saw the recommendation for #1 but i cant find it ... is that the correct name?) And if possible 1 good BBQ place.
Also any great places for Jazz, Blues, Zydeco or spanish music in that area?
and last but not least -- any great wine bars / cocktail lounges for afternoon drinks? (wink sounds good @ 5pm)
thanks a ton!
