Out-of-towners seeking place to eat T-Giving dinner in Austin area. Not really excited about paying big bucks for a fancy hotel buffet. A friend recommended Hyde Park Bar and Grill while dissing Threadgill's. We're open to any and all recommendations.

    Similar thread was updated just yesterday.

    The last post, a link to an Austin Chronicle article, has a great deal of information regarding restaurants that will be open. Most of the restaurants listed have been referenced somewhere on this board at some time or another in the past year.

      Thanks. Good info there. Green Pastures looked especially interesting, but they're not doing T-Giving dinner. Omni was on my list as an in betweener (a little more than a standard dinner, but a lot less than some of the 4* hotels). Hoover's looks appealing as well and Threadgill's has its fans for the turkey day dinner (my only other experience there was for CFS and it was very average the day I tried it).

        Good news. Green Pastures is doing a brunch this year. Bad news, they're fully booked.
