First Visit to Austin

hydraaa Jan 6, 2011 11:45 AM

Coming in a few weeks with my wife. We are staying at the Four Seasons. Have never been, but love Texas and the people having been to other parts of your state.

A quick question...I need 3 recommendations for top notch recommendations for dinner. Not looking for the local BBQ which we will hit for lunch, but for the best 4 star restaurants in town.

Thank you in advance!

    The ones that jump out at me are:

    1. Uchi or Uchiko (two diff restaurants, same exec chef) - this will probably be the top recommended high end restaurant. Uchiko is in a new building right next door to Houndstooth, a nice coffee shop with serious attention to espresso.
    2. Wink - Been around for a while, but still one of the best intimate dining experiences around. Lots of local ingredients and servers are sharp with the wine/food recs.
    3. La Condesa for high end fancy interior mexican. I have still yet to go, but need to find an excuse.

    Uchi Restaurant
    801 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704

    La Condesa
    400-A W 2nd St, Austin, TX 78701
