my husband and I will be in Austin for just a weekend but want to go somewhere great for lunch one day. We wanted to find out if anyone can suggest a spot that is hot right now? We would consider ourselves foodies and have been to the Austin spots like Maudies, County Line, Rudys, etc. so we are looking for a fun spot. Maybe even bring the kids to. We don't mind off the beaten path. Let me know.
Trailers are "hot" right now...both figuratively, and literally. Many of them aren't open for lunch, but quite a few are. If you could give us a little more information about your food preferences, we could probably suggest some good ones.
Other newish places that have gotten a fair amount of buzz and are open for lunch: Haddington's, Second. Both are good and accessible to many palates, although neither blows me out of the water, food-wise.
