One night in Austin. Where to have dinner?

I'm in Austin for one night on Thursday and want to have dinner with four of my girlfriends. Somewhere with a good atmosphere, full bar, and excellent food. Entrees between $20-$35 ok. Looking for a place unique to Austin, but preferably not mexican.

      Where are you staying? Will you have a car?

        We will have a car. Any location will be fine.

      Uchi, Wink, Jeffery's, Vespaio, or Hudson's on the Bend. I like Congress Ave Cafe, too. The food is very good, although not in the same league as the first five places I mentioned.

        Sorry, that should read South Congress Cafe.

          I was going to suggest all of the places mentioned above. They are all fantastic places, also Fino, Chez-nous, Sienna, Sullivan's Steakhouse, or Asti Trattoria.
