Downtown Austin favorites
Will be there next Thursday night. Staying at the Driskell, was wondering what people liked in that area.
That encompasses a lot. Can you give us more information? Maybe what type of cuisine you're looking for, price range, etc?
Also, using the "search this board" link above, type in "downtown" and you should be able to pull up a wealth of similar topics.
Other close-by obvious choices: The Four Seasons' redesigned restaurant, Louis' 106 (wish they'd bring back their delightful grilled fresh sardines though), La Traviata. All 3 close walking distance. Personally, I think Uchi is the best restaurant in Austin, a bit far to walk, but probably a 5 minute cab-ride. Another short cab-ride, for downscale, would be Sam's BBQ for the best BBQ in town, or Curra's on Oltorf, one of the better Tex-Mex places.
