  1. What is the meaning of all this?

    1. Texas, or Austin?

      If we're talking Texas lunch, BBQ at several great spots, innumerable West Texas Tex-Mex joints. Is La Reve in San Antonio open for lunch?. I know a bunch of really good steakhouses in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Houston are.

        1. Sorry. Austin. Friday at lunch. Good friend is moving to Omaha. This is his last lunch with the Friday lunch gang.

          So far in the running are (tricky, the places he really wants to go aren't open for lunch...)

          Clay Pit
          East Side Cafe
          Cafe Jose
          Bistro 88
          Thai Passion

          In that order.

            He doesn't have some craving of his own?
            For me, it would probably be Las Manitas or Ruby's BBQ. I would miss the vegetarian chorizo plate and the black bean tacos at those restaurants.

              Should be nice on Friday - what about an upscale patio somewhere. Like Shoreline or similar?

                Out of that list I would pick Mikado.

              2. he chose Clay Pit. What do people see in this place?! I was (again) wholly unimpressed.
