dinner in north austin...
What are some quiet, conversation-friendly, date-friendly places for dinner in north austin? I'm thinking of Ventana, Trulucks, NXNW, Melting Pot.
Anything else? Not very particular about the type of food...would just like it to be "non-chaotic".
I know that a lot of people think of Reale's for pizza, but it can be quite charming in the evening. The italian food is all around quite good. Their house salad dressing is super. The ambiance is not new and shiney, but I get that "neighborhood italian" feeling. They have a crooner doing Dean Martin on Wednesday nights. I've also heard a lot of buzz about Mood and Food near Riverplace.
