Austin 2-19: grilled seafood and baby back ribs

I'll be in Austin on the 19th entertaining a friend from DC who only eats grilled (possibly blackened) seafood and baby back ribs. (He isn't supposed to eat the ribs, but...) Anyway, I'm broad-minded and willing to indulge his eccentricities. A place in or near downtown woudl be best. Suggestions?

      Thanks much. We ended up going for seafood at Truluck's downtown. I had a wonderful parmesan-crusted sea bass, adn the cioppino was great, but what's with their gumbo?

      The lead baby back rib candidate ended up being Artz. I'll try Lambert's next trip
