NEW CONCEPT"S AND CHAIN'S IN AUSTIN!!!!
I LOVE NEW RESTAURANT CONCEPT"S!!!!
"Austin is a mecca for cultural and business opportunities, creating a community of active, busy professionals which provide the vital elements that service-oriented businesses need in order to succeed."
**REBECCA MARTIN**, senior vice president for marketing and communications at the Austin Chamber of Commerce.
Are our tax dollars paying these people to trumpet non-local endeavors?
It really irks me when someone uses the word "concept" instead of restaurant. I enjoy small regional chains (such as Jim's, First Chinese Bar-B-Q or Perry's Steakhouse), but concepts drive me bonkers.
(PS - if I was looking for a regional chain to bring to town, the Houston based Mambo's Seafood gets my vote).
