      Not sure when Paul Qui's restaurant is opening, but I think it's somewhere toward the end of March. If it's open when you're here, I'd wager that it will be THE THE place to be/to eat then.

        Tx Optimista. According to my reads, Paul Qui seems a star.

        Not being from Austin, won't comment on where to "be seen" but for the sheer pleasure of an excellent dining experience....Barley Swine hands down. Reservations for early/late seatings available via e-mail. For party of two/three order one of everything, ask to sit at the bar if possible-service is absolutely superb, who needs white tablecloths anyway.

          Sway is pretty trendy right now (and at dinner runs a 2 hour wait!). It's upscale/modern Thai and quite good in my opinion.
