Flying to Austin for a special engagement party weekend with my best friends.

We are looking for a great place for dinner, not too stuffy, but upscale and fun. Any suggestions? Maybe some good music, too.

  1. I think Lambert's would be a great choice for your group.

      I second Lambert's. It can be loud and you'll need reservations but the food can be awesome (avoid some of the barbecue), the music is good, etc. You can get them to reserve a table upstairs where the bands play as well.

    2. What type of food are you looking for? How big is your group? Budget?
      Any particular part of town?
      Keep in mind this is the peak of prom & graduation season so many places are booking up if you want party rooms.

      1. How about FOGO de CHAO great place to eat. Love the congac wings. The Brazillian food is great/
