Upscale Local Food

BeanTownGolfer | May 13, 200803:41 PM

I'm coming to Austin for my first time over Memorial Day weekend. I wanted to see if anyone could make some suggestions for all sorts of food. I'd like to do one really nice restaurant that prides itself on local ingredients. I'm not really picky about the type of food, other than its all local.

On the complete opposite side of that, I'd love recommendations for places with the best margaritas (its still in the 50 and 40s at night where I'm from), tacos, and BBQ. Are there any places that have exceptional tongue tacos? I've always found that those are by far the best, but there aren't any spots near me that have that sort of authentic mexican food. As for the BBQ, I love all things pork.

I'm sure I'll get suggestions from the people I'm visiting, but I always like to know a little bit before heading to a new spot. Thanks to all in advance.
